    Works fine for me. Sometimes (usually on a location change) it seems to default back to password, but clicking the PIN logo works.

    Do you have Enterprise or Pro? It is not working for me on Pro, but works on my enterprise machines.

    PIN login works fine here on regular login screen. However, if I switch to the new login screen via the registry trick, my PIN login stops working, even after setting it multiple times. It always throws an error PIN incorrect. Only pw login works. On regular login screen everything works again.

    ​did you switch to the new login screen by chance?

    That's because you upgraded from Windows 8 and haven't messed with this setting. For fresh installs it does not work.

    TO ALL:

    With Windows 10 No Login PIN issue:
    I am using most current version of Preview Windows 10 Pro 10.10159
    Goto Setting -> Account -> Sign-In Options, make sure connected to Internet
    Push "I forgot Pin" -> sign-in as requested, when requested to create new PIN, PRESS CANCEL - important.
    Then open File Explorer Navigate to: C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC
    must be logged in as an Administrator - Delete everything within that folder
    Go to Settings-> Accounts->Sign-in Options
    Click Add a PIN again and set your PIN
    PIN sign in should work going forward
    Use Windows Key + L to lock terminal to test

    Works fine!!!

    As an FYI:

    I couldn't get access to the folder in the steps below (even as admin) for some reason, but the process still worked. On 10162, at least, it appears you don't need to worry about that folder....just omit that step.

    I tried fixing it without deleting the contents of the folder, didn't work.
    It only worked after I did exactly the same, including deleting the contents of the NGC folder.
    Thank you very much for the help.

    Here is my experience. After upgrading to Windows 10, my PIN login no longer worked. So I tried to access the NGC folder and could not do so even with Administrator privileges but I used a free program to finally access the folder. I deleted everything in the NGC folder and the s*?t really hit the fan. A good number of features totally stopped working and other than reinstalling windows, the only other solution was to uninstall windows 10 and then reinstall it. That fixed everything and now my PIN Login is working. Good luck ppl...

    Finally a working solution!! I had been battling this for over a month and was running out of excuses to the family (that was too lazy to have to enter a password every time )
    Thank you!
