  • Well Jamesrey55,

    I am not sure I got your point.

    Which I should make it clear is, Windows could only identify you by User account along with the PIN or password, and this is the way how Windows works, Windows,  the system can't identify your thought without the authentication.

    If you are the only person who will use this machine, then you may take a look at the auto-logon I shared earlier.

    Regards

  • Not 'Hide' but you can disable it.

    Open Settings.

    • Click on Accounts.
    • Select Sign-in options.
    • Look for PIN. Since you have already created a pin, you should be getting option as Forgot my PIN, click on that.
    • Now click on Continue.
    • Don’t enter the pin details and click on Cancel.

  • Hi James,

    What is your current situation?

    If you would like to disable the PIN login under the logon screen, then please follow the suggestions provided by S.Sengupta;

    If you would like to sign-in Windows without entering password or PIN, then we may consider to enable auto-logon feature.

  • Thanks, for both responses. It isn't a problem with the highlighted "Password" or "PIN" request. It's just that I know whether my password or pin is required and I don't need prompting. Why prompt someone who doesn't know? 

    I'm thinking there's maybe a Hive setting I could change, but I don't want to mess with Regedit, unless I knew what I was doing.

    Thanks,

                  James.
