I am running Windows 10 on my computers.  On one of them I wanted to switch from entering my Password on login to just using a PIN.  I successfully created a PIN, but now when I log on the computer still defaults to asking for my password.  If I hit "Login Options" two different accounts with my name appear at the lower left corner of the screen.  One (which apparently is the default) requires a password.  The other one allows me to login in my PIN.  Can I eliminate the password one, and only have Windows ask for a PIN?
