Reset lock screen options?

Ella Jade

Jul 19, 2014
On the lock screen in windows 8 where you have to enter your password to get into the computer, there used to be a sign in options where you could use a pin or a password. I didn't know the pin so I hit password but don't know the password. I now know the correct pin to get into the computer but now it only gives me the password choice. How do I get it back to where I can put in the pin when I can't even get into the computer?
