  1. Windows PIN


    Having issues with my son logging into his PC. His PIN is not working. The message says to try a different login option but there is nothing listed. just the PIN. My login on his computer still works but I can’t find any way to either change his pin, disable it, or use his windows password. I read everything I could find - even tried reinstalling windows but the login screen looking for his password is still there. Please let me know what I can do. I tried calling tech support but they have sent me here and there is no live agent option…Thanks

    :)

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar

    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.
