    Password is missing from sign-in options


    This is on the wife's DELL Laptop I was working on. "Here's the post" My wife wants me to change the login password from the one that I created. No big deal I thought. Now the thing is that option is not there. How do I find this option?? Thank folks I really appreciate your help

    Wouldn't you know it!! Just after I post this I run across a fix. Regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device.

    Set:
    DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion to 0 and reboot. The option is there now.

    :)

  2. password sign in

    Hi,

    About your concern with typing the password after being idle, it is actually recommended to activate for security reasons.

    If you wish to disable it, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Click on Sign in options.
    • On the right side, you will see required sign in.
    • Change it to Never.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. Long boot time and passwords missing

    The only reason I mention the account is that a Windows update recently was causing people to be signed into a temporary account, your password manager may be installed for all users but the list of passwords would be user specific, therefore the blank password list suggests a different account. *Smile

    Password is missing from sign-in options

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

    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:


    Password is missing from sign-in options 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
