    A PIN on that device has no bearing on any other.

    7 and 10 on various machines

    Ok mate so one PIN one machine in other words 4 machines 4 PIN's.

    So when I do that clean install tomorrow if I change the current password to a PIN then I will have to use that PIN when using my Microsoft account to set the machine up.

    I think I will leave as is with my current password for Live that way I shall not get into any problems.

    Yeah, but you aren't really changing a password to use a PIN, your password is still there for all your account actions that need it, you are just adding a PIN to sign in with on that machine, instead of using your password.

    Don't change your password because that will change it on all devices.
