Windows Hello PIN - This option is currently unavailable

(1/2) > >>

DR M:
Hello to the best forum in the whole Web!   :)

The question is: How do I remove or change the PIN I use for sign-in Windows?

I created a PIN when the option was still there in Sign-in Settings, and I sign-in Windows with that, instead of using the Microsoft account's password.

Now, the only option in Settings is Windows Hello PIN, and it is unavailable (see attachment).

I tried to add in the registry the following value, but nothing happens.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
"AllowDomainPINLogon"=dword:00000001

Ideas?

What happened when you clicked "Learn more"?

I'm getting in to this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-sign-in-options-and-account-protection-7b34d4cf-794f-f6bd-ddcc-e73cdf1a6fbf#managehello

Which is actually for a working feature, since there is nowhere a remove/change option.

Corrine:
You should be able to remove the pin by going to Accounts > Sign-in Options, illustrated here:  How to Remove Your PIN and Other Sign-In Options from Windows 10 (howtogeek.com).

Do you have a Microsoft Account set up?  If so, try selecting that option.

No remove/change option. In the previous attachment see what I have under the title Windows Hello PIN.

I can change my Microsoft account's password, but I don't want to use that when I sign in.

When I set the PIN, things were different. There was not a Windows Hello PIN. See the attachment below.
