You have to switch to password on the login screen first, they should be a button to do so

I just tried this and as soon as I put in my password for my Microsoft account and press enter I get the message "Provide a PIN".
The point is that if you set up a PIN you don't have to press enter, if you set up a 6-digit PIN then as soon as you type the sixth digit it logs you in so I'm not sure how this should work if your password is, for example, 8 characters, then as soon as you come to character 6 it would try to log you in. Anyways, if it works for you then great, it certainly does not work for me, but I prefer a PIN so I don't really care if I can log in with my password or not.

You can Use either a password or pin
He is using his Microsoft account sign in info, so if he changes to the pin, can he use either or will that change his signin information when he goes to the Microsoft store or other Microsoft places, including Office, where he needs to sign in?
