    missing picture password option in sign-in options window, does not appear to exist! PLEASE...


    I recently reset my pc back to factory default... Before doing this I was able to use picture password as my sign-in option but now, that option is no longer available to me and this poses a big issue for me, personally.


    When I go to the sign-in option window, this is the only options I see here:

    missing picture password option in sign-in options window, does not appear to exist! PLEASE... 157e36dc-edbf-4205-86e4-914162599cd6?upload=true.png

    Yes, everything is fully updated with the latest creators edition and all current windows updates according to when I attempt to install updates, it says "Your up to date"


    I've also performed all the suggestions I found online per the ways to fix this.


    here's a run down of all the steps taken:

    using the 'run' box I typed in the following:


    Step 1:

    1. secpol.msc and press Enter.
    2. In the left pane of Local Security Policy window, navigate to Local Policies -> Security Options.
    3. On the right hand side, double-click on the “Interactive Logon: Do Not Display Last User Name” setting.


    Steps 2 & 3 were given to turn off picture password, I wanted to turn it on, so the suggestion to select enabled to turn it off, I chose disabled and instead of a value set at 1, I set it at 0


    Step 2:

    1. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
    2. In the left pane of Local Group Policy Editor, navigate to:
      Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon
    3. In the right pane, you can see a policy named “Turn off picture password sign-in“, double-click on it and set it to Enabled I selected DISABLED instead. Finally, click Apply / OK and reboot to apply the changes.

    Step 3:

    Disable Picture Password Sign-in with Register Editor

    1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run box. Type regedit and press Enter. This will open the Registry Editor.
    2. Next, navigate to following entry:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System

      If the System subkey doesn’t exist, you’ll have to create it.

    3. In right pane, look for an entry named BlockDomainPicturePassword. If it doesn’t exist, right-click on empty space and create a DWORD value and assign name as BlockDomainPicturePassword.
    4. Double-click the BlockDomainPicturePassword value and set it to 1. I SET THE VALUE TO 0

    YES! I RESTARTED PC, NO GOOD! I am still unable to even see PICTURE PASSWORD as a sign-in option in the sign-in options window, per the image above


    These are the only steps I've been able to locate to hopefully resolve my issue but none of these has panned out.


    I really need some assistance here to resolve this specific issue.


    I WANT TO BE ABLE TO SIGN IN USING MY SELECTED PICTURE PASSOWRD, but how am I supposed to do that, if that option is not even available to me? I.e. windows hello face unavailable on my machine. windows hello fingerprint also unavailable. windows hello PIN. and security key. BUT NO PICTURE PASSWORD!!!


    Please, can somebody help me fix this?

    I've been at this for 3-1/2 days now, attempting to fix it on my own and retrying, retrying and retrying more, the same steps over and over again because the above steps are the only ones I've found that even remotely addresses my issue, somewhat and I feel like I'm about to lose my mind...


    thanks

    :)

    Missing Pin Option in Sign-In Options Menu

    The 'I forgot my PIN' option allows me to change my PIN, but the PIN change option is still missing in my Sign-In options. Trying the steps in the link provided doesn't cause this option to appear. Is it a bug in my OS?

    Windows 10 picture password not appearing on sign in screen

    Do you have any group policy settings activated? This could sometimes be an issue with the picture password, as some policy gets this disabled by default. If group policy is enabled on your system, follow these steps in disabling the policy "Do not display
    last user name":

    • Press the Windows key + R keyboard combination to open a Run box, then type
      secpol.msc
      and press Enter.
    • In the left pane of Local Security Policy window, navigate to Local Policies -> Security Options.
    • On the right hand side, double-click on the “Interactive Logon: Do Not Display Last User Name” setting. Now switch the radio button from
      Enabled to Disabled, then click Apply.
    • Restart your computer and the Picture Password / PIN code sign-in options will be back.

    Please advise.

    It does but the option for the picture password isn't there. The second picture is with the Sign in options selected and the PIN and password are the only 2 options given.
