    You should be able to type in the user name and password of the same account you signed in to before setting this.

    If not, then you could try doing a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before you set this to undo it.

    Hey Shawn thanks for the help mate.

    Neither I know the username and password nor does I saved a restore point back then.
    Anything possible.

    In that case, it looks like you may need to do a clean install, or reset Windows 10 at boot.

    Is it possible to display the Computer Name?

    (I am on Windows 10 Home, and like to use a PIN to sign in)

    Hello FrozenCursor,

    I'm afraid that to be able to sign in with a PIN you will need to enable displaying user names on the sign-in screen.

    How about creating a Local Account (not a Microsoft account) for a user that happens to have the same name as the Computer Name? If necessary, make that user an Administrator.

    You won't be able to name a user account with the same name as the computer, but you could have it the same with an added number to at least be close.

    Thanks for the comments!

    The excellent tutorials sometimes lead me (and perhaps others too) to ideas beyond my computer capabilities Much appreciated!
