During the setup of Windows 11 on my new laptop, I followed the recommendation to use the "Hello" logon and specified a PIN for use during logon. It works well and is quick. However, when I use this method to logon, I cannot connect to a shared drive on a file server on the network (asks for a PIN to login). If I logoff and back on again using my Microsoft Office 365 password, I can then access the shared drive. Is there a way that I can use the shared drive while logged in with the PIN?

I tried several solutions I found on the web but ended up doing away with pin login altogether.
