    How to make UAC prompt me for my PIN instead of password

    Hi all,

    I was wondering how to make Windows UAC prompting me for my PIN be the default behavior, instead of prompting for my password?

    I have just reinstalled Windows 10 on my laptop. I used to be able to do that. Now that I have reinstalled Windows 10 it prompts for my password and I always have to click a button that says "Show me other choices" to then being able to choose the PIN option and then type it.

    I am using Windows 10 version 1607 and was using it then.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sign-in with a Microsoft Account solves my problem


    I found out that when you sign in with Microsoft Account it asks for a PIN, and after you've got that set up, UAC prompts, as default, for a PIN instead of the user password.
