    Login with PIN code?


    Hey,
    I have the PIN set up already but that's only for when I lock the PC,
    is there a way where I have to enter my PIN to access the computer from boot up.

    Hello Partians,

    You should be able to enter your PIN at any sign in screen. If you don't have the option by default, then you should be able to click/tap on the Sign in options link like below to select to sign in with your PIN instead.

    Yeah I already have that but that's only for when the pc locks (I set it up like that) I wantt it where whenever I boot my PC whether that's a restart, a normal boot or a hibernation you will always need to use the PIN code, is there any way to do this.

    It should be like that on the sign in screen for all those as well.

    Do you not have a Sign in options link on them?

    What are you seeing instead?

    Straight from boot = "Welcome" then loads and boots in, no password or pin needed
    When it's locked = Weather, time etc.. and then when i type/click it shows up a input field box.

    That's the sign-in options that I have.

    Checking the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box will stop Windows from automatically signing in to the account at startup for you to have to enter a PIN/password again.
