    Mark, greetings.
    You mentioned W-7 ??? Are you now on W-10 ? If so, when upgrading, it is supposed to keep all your settings except a few and the PW is one. You will have to remember your PW and input it then to go Start -> Settings -> then top right line you will see Account. Waddle your way to set a Pin and joy will be yours to enjoy.

    I do not remember in W-10 that one could set the " Do not ask " in this regard, I have not looked for it. Edit : I went looking for it but alas ! did not find it. Somebody else will pipe up, I am sure.

    All best wishes. Jean.

    The location of Pin/ Password is settings>Accounts>Sign-In Options. You can change or amend things there.
    Since I use a password, I haven't checked out the PIN settings.

    Huge fan of using pin since Win8.1. Even if you are the only one home and this is your PC, I would use some form of security. A four digit pin isn't going to hurt you. Had to actually re-remember my password for Win10 recently (have only used pin for well over a year) since I just discovered I have an email account that I didn't even know I had (outlook.com; pretty cool). Since I doubt I will ever use the account much, I won't add it to my email scanner (have 3 accounts that I continually scan; can even delete messages using this cool tool). Still, you should also not forget your Win10 password since it's the same for your onedrive as well (which I do use a little more often, but not by much).

    Lumpy, greetings.
    You gave the right location to access the page to work/set a PW. Now, if you could only give us a way to set to : Do not ask. Some of us would like to know, after all this is the gist of this subject.

    All best wishes. Jean.

    Looks like Joe & Jerry have saved the day. I kept getting the "DataBase Error" when trying to open the lounge site this afternoon.
