    How to disable / remove the PIN logon at startup


    I tried this tutorial, doesn't work for me
    Remove PIN from your Account in Windows 10

    Because there is no "remove" button (see picture)
    A regedit file to get rid of this nuisance would be great but anything else that would work will do
    Please help!

    Here's something. A Workaround to Disable PIN Login in Windows 10 / 8 Scroll down to Method 2: "Disable PIN Login By Renaming NGC Folder" There's a registry option but it indicates your PIN will still be active. Give it a look.

    @Lance1 ,
    The method #2 did not worked because, windows is saying I have not the permission to do that, access denied
    I tried the method #1 and it doesn't work either

    @Lance1 , now it asks for a password when I log in ! It is the same as a pin, except it asks for a password. Weird thing is that I don't have that on the desktop PC, only on the laptop

    When your in Windows hit Windows key + R Type control userpasswords2

    This will stop Windows from asking for a password each time you log in.
