    If a person forgets his MS account pin, how can it be recovered?


    I'm in W10 version 1909, built 18363.657, and I've tried whatever I can think of but MS wants my pin before I can download a browser extension from the Store, but I keep coming back to the screen that wants the pin even when I indicate that I've forgotten it. What a bunch of BS!

    I tried your suggestion but there was no option to recover, change, or delete my pin.

    Hello Charlie,

    You can't recover your PIN, but you should be able to reset the PIN using an available option in the tutorial below.
