You can change using of PIN to using of password in Windows 11 easily. All you need to do, is to disable the using of PIN and then add a password, if it is not already created.

Go to Settings and choose Accounts:

windows 11 change using of pin to using of password

In Ways to sign in section, click on PIN (Windows Hello) to show the options and click on Remove:

windows 11 disable pin to sign in enable password

Confirm the removing of PIN by clicking on Remove:

windows 11 sign in to account remove pin

Then click on Password to add or change password:

windows 11 sign in to account with password instead of pin

Windows 11 is usually linked to some email account. If you use email services, then current Windows password may be the same as your email account password.
