Enable Windows PIN Sign-In

If a Windows 8.x/10 computer is joined to an Active Directory domain then the User Account “PIN sign-in” option is disabled (not Configured) by default. You can set it in either a domain or local Group Policy Object (GPO). It can also enabled on a local computer via a registry key setting.

For Local Group Policy run [Win+R] gpedit.msc and under Local Computer Policy expand the tree to:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
Change the Turn on convenience PIN sign-in setting to Enabled.

Reset Windows Local “Group Policy Objects” Back To Defaults

This is from MS KB/Q: 313222. It should not change or reset the IPSec settings, but you might want back them up just in case.

Use the SECEDIT command to copy the original setting that are stored in the “defltbase.inf” file.
