I've searched everywhere, and I can't find an answer to this.
When I try to add a PIN, which is on a TEST laptop that I intend to use only for Insider builds, it complains that I have to "Provide a PIN that meets the complexity requirements. Your PIN can't be a common number pattern".
I've turned off all the other settings in the group policy editor, so that it's just a standard 4-digit pin. No history, no expiration, no requirement of letters or upper/lower case. BUT THERE'S NO SETTING FOR THE NUMBER PATTERN. I don't care if it's insecure. I want to log in quickly and simply just to test things.
How can I disable this? It was apparently recently added, as I've had a simple PIN for a while, but the latest insider build crashed my PC and I had to reset/revert it. And since it's a brand new install, it erased my existing PIN, so when I went to add it... I couldn't.
This is really frustrating. I understand the need for security for most people in most situations, but I'm not in any of those situations, and I really don't want to make up some new complicated PIN I won't remember or have to write down (defeating the purpose anyway). If I want my PIN to be "1111" or "2222", how do I enable this, and TURN OF the complexity and pattern requirements?
Also, most of the stuff I found was for domain-joined business computers. This is a stand-alone laptop running Windows Pro. No "Windows Hello", nothing fancy.
