A good password or pin code is hard to crack, but can be hard to remember. If you have forgotten or lost your Windows login PIN, you cannot retrieve it, but you can change it. This is how.
Resetting your Windows pin code when you are not logged in.
Assuming you have already added a pin code to your Microsoft account, that pin code makes logging in to devices much faster. If for any reason you are excluded from your Windows PC, go to the login screen and click on the "I forgot my PIN code" link.
Enter the password for your Microsoft account. You can then enter an existing account security code or have Microsoft send a new code via e-mail.
Enter the security code and click "Verify". Enter your new PIN code twice. You have now reset your PIN code; use this new one when logging in to this device.
Reset your Windows PIN code if you are already logged in.
If you have access to your Windows device but still want to reset your PIN code, start opening the Start menu. and then click on the Settings gear.
Click "Accounts" in the Windows settings pop-up. Then click Login Options> Windows Hello PIN> I have forgotten my PIN.
Enter your Microsoft password and then enter your new PIN twice to complete the change.
