Hi MilesjD,

What is the status of your current Account? Is it a Microsoft account with Administrator privileges, or a Local User Account ( i.e. you are not signing in with a Microsoft account password ).

If it is a Microsoft account, then try clicking Start > Settings cog > Accounts and selecting Your info on the left pane, the do the following:
  • On the right pane click Sign in with a local account instead and follow prompts to create this
  • When done, sign-out then sign-in to your Local account
  • Now click Start > Settings cog > Accounts and on left pane select Sign-in options
  • Now on right pane select Windows HELLO pin
  • Create a pin
  • Now on left pane select Your info
  • Click Sign in with a Microsoft account and follow prompts
  • Sign out then sign-in again to your Microsoft account

    All going well you'll now be able to use the pin to sign-in with.

Regards,

I am Local user and have no issue with pin to taskbar using right click or also from menu use right click to pin to start or pin to taskbar.
you might open command prompt as Admin then run SFC /scannow to see if you have any system file corruption.
