Windows 10: Can I make Windows automatically ask for my PIN and not password?

    Can I make Windows automatically ask for my PIN and not password?


    Noob question inbound.

    When I log in, I have both options to sign in - Password, or PIN number.. But the password option is selected as the primary sign-in option.

    What I'd like to do is be able to open my computer and the PIN option is already selected and I just punch it in and go. First world problem I know.

    But is it possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, simple enough. I simply deleted the exsisting PIN and then reset it. Seemed to do the trick.

    Thank you!
