    How can i enable PIN logon


    My pc for some reason has stopped asking for my PIN when I start the computer/restart.

    How can I re activate or enable this?

    In the Group Policy I have gone to; Computer Config>Administrative Templates>System>Logon

    I have the "Turn on convenience pin sign-in" enabled and it still doesn't ask for it?

    Any ideas?

    :)

    Mapped network drives do not connect at logon in vista with automatic logon enabled

    I have vista x64 . I have some mapped network drives . They get connected when i enter the password at logon screen. Now i enabled automatic logon in vista and they do not connect anymore . I have to double click on them and enter the password manually .

    Windows displays the message "Could not connect to all drives" at logon .

    They used to connect automatically in xo with automatic logon enabled.

    My logon password is the same as the administrator password with which i can connect to these drives .

  3. FingerPrint - Without Windows Hello PIN

    Hi Xinete,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your query, I like to inform you that; we cannot set the finger print Logon without setting the Windows hello pin. Windows hello pin will work as an alternative option to login to your computer through finger print Logon. Windows hello
    pin will help you to login to your computer if you are unable to login to your computer through finger print authentication.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to enable finger print logon.


    • Press Windows key + r and type
      gpedit.msc
      and hit Enter.

    • Select Administrative Templates under
      Computer Configuration.

    • Select Windows Components.

    • Select Biometrics.
    In Biometrics > consider that for a home system, you might enable the following:

    1) Allow the use of biometrics

    2) Allow users to log on using biometrics



    For information, refer to the below link:
