    Windows Hello Fingerprint issue

    Hi Rajesh,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand that you are unable to use Windows Hello Fingerprint to sign in to Windows. It would be great if you can reply with the details requested below:



    • When you say, “I am not getting the option to log-in into windows using fingerprint.” What login options do you see on the login screen?
    • What happens when you try to use the Windows Hello Fingerprint scanner to login to Windows?
    • Were you able to use the Windows Hello Fingerprint to login to Windows earlier?


    Ideally, on the login screen, you will see Sign-in options that allows you to use different sign-in methods to login to Windows.



    As you have mentioned that you are able to use the Fingerprint scanner on websites, I would suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    1. On the login screen, click on Sign-in options.
    2. Click on the Fingerprint icon, scan the Fingerprint, and see if you are able to sign in.


    Refer the screenshot below:

    If the issue persists, try removing the Fingerprint and add it again. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + I, to open
      Settings
      .
    2. Click on Accounts and click on
      Sign-in options
      on the left pane.
    3. Now, click on Windows Hello Fingerprint and click on
      Remove.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove the Fingerprint.
    5. Once done, click on Set up and follow the on-screen instructions to add the Fingerprint.


    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
