For a  long time I have used a PIN code to sign in on my computers but now it is going wrong. First, I stopped being offered the PIN option and have had to use my PASSWORD. After this had persisted for about a week I tried to refresh my PIN in the hope it would work again, but in Settings I found that the  PIN page would not open. Clicking the button has no effect or the timer dots rotate endlessly. I have shut down / restarted and I have tried sfc/scannow and DISM without success.

 

How do I get the PIN option back?

For me there is an option on the bottom of the sign in screen that said sign in options. You can toggle between PIN and password.

Thanks but I am not able to check that out because, alas, I cannot now access Windows 10 at all! Time after time I get stuck on the Lock Screen and cannot bring up the sign in page. There is only the close down / restore buttons (which work). I am guessing that this is further deterioration of the first problem.

It is plainly a Windows 10 corruption problem. My PC is dual boot, Windows and Android OS. I am able to launch in Android and run it OK. I am replying here using Android Opera. So now I can only make progress when I find how to boot in Windows.

Maybe you should reinstall the win10.

If you have installation media or other recovery media you should try doing a repair install. It will re-install any corrupted OS files.
