    how to change login on lockscreen to just numbers on win pro

    So, during one of the insider previews, we were able to change the login at the lock screen from our password, to a 4 digit number..The next insider preview changed that back to having to login with your password again.

    On my wife's win 10 home version, she has several ways to login; password, face recognition, numeric password; is there a way to do any of that on windows Pro, or is there different security protocols that restrict how we can login on Pro?

    I just decide to change my lock screen also. I tried the group policy procedure and still cannot change the lock screen picture. I also have Windows 10 Pro. A google search tells others are having the same issue
    Sure hope someone knows a workaround.
