    Pin option missing from lock screen

    A few days ago when booting up my laptop I lost the option to login using my pin. I've tried resetting this in account settings but when I try to add a new pin it has me login with my password and old pin, then stops running the process. If I click the "forgot pin" option the pop-up window tells me to go to the account settings window that I already have open to reset my pin.

    Do you mean that the login screen no longer shows the link to "Sign in options" beneath the space where you enter your Password?

    I indeed think that is what he means! Mine doesn't show it too. It has probably a link with his other threat from coming out of sleepmode, cuz I have those two problems also on my Asus Laptop. (Asus laptop restarts from sleep when on battery - Windows 10 Forums)
