    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.
