    Re: How to use 4 digit PIN number to login into Windows 8?

    Hello Friend,


    The PIN logon is similar to PIN in credit cards and other bank accounts. It allows you to setup Windows 8 login password at the most four digits. This password protection option has been added to Windows 8 for tablet users to enter code via touch-numpad, but PC users can also create PIN to logon to Windows 8 using either Windows Live account username and password or PIN code.




    If you would like to specify a PIN for logon for your account instead of a password, please follow the steps as blew after installing the developer preview version of Windows 8.


    Step 1. On the default Metro style home window, click Control Panel.


    Step 2. Select Users from main navigation bar and click Create a PIN on left side of the Window.


    Step 3.You’ll be prompted for the password of your current account. Enter the logon password and click on OK button.


    Step 4. Enter the four digit PIN and also retype the PIN to confirm it. Click on "Finish" to end your operation.


    That is all! your PIN is now set up for PIN logon to Windows 8 and you can start using it next time to login to Windows 8 account.
