  1. How to disable Windows Hello


    I have been forced to create a Windows Hello PIN on all of my user accounts. I am ENTIRELY uninterested in this feature, yet any time I remove the PIN from my account I am forced to recreate it the next time that I log in. I could probably live with this nonsense, except that every third time or so that I log in, I get a blue screen that tells me I need to finish setting up Windows Hello. It makes me re-enter my original password to verify my identity, then makes me re-enter my PIN to once again verify my identity, then it crashes. I end up on the desktop with a dead minimized Microsoft Account window that never goes away unless I whip out the Task Manager. If I ignore it, I'll end up with multiple dead minimized windows after a few days...I have three waiting to be executed as I type this.


    After reading an earlier post, I tried to disable Windows Hello entirely under Settings/Accounts/Sign In Options, but there is nothing under the Windows Hello header except a message that reads "Windows Hello isn't Available on this Device". I'm awfully curious why it's making itself such a hassle if it isn't even compatible with this device.


    How do I get rid of this garbage?

    Windows Hello Camera Still Turns On After Disabling Feature

    I have already done all those steps to disable Windows Hello listed in the link you provided, but I am still getting prompted that it cannot recognize my face even though Windows Hello is turned off. Just to clarify, I do not want to use Windows Hello
    at all. I want to use my regular, alphanumeric password.
