    PIN not an option for my Local Account or MS Account


    Hello - I've been researching why I do not have the PIN option under my Sign-On options for my local and Microsoft accounts but I'm not having any luck finding out why. This is a clean install of Windows 10 and it is activated. Everything else works flawlessly except there isn't an option for me to use a PIN to login.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    I believe that I saw it sometime during the Preview builds, but not for 10240.

    Go into settings/accounts/sign-in options. Can you set a PIN? (You may have to go through a verification through email.)

    My Sign-In options screen doesn't even show an option for a PIN. Odd..

    I had the pin option in build 10130, but it failed on the upgrade to 10158, and remained broken upgrading through all intermediate builds to 10240. I then reset that build, the pin may have been working, but I lost the start menu tiles, so I next did a clean install, with the same insider preview 10240, and against all indications it worked fine, including pin and Start menu, but it never activated, even til today. There was a change pin option in settings that did nothing during the failure builds.
