  1. Windows 10 1909 breaks Windows Hello with YubiKey 4


    Hi. Been using Windows 10 ever since it came out. Windows Hello with YubiKey 4 never had a problem. All updates to 1903 were fine but then, recently I upgraded to 1909 because someone suggested that might fix an issue I had with Your Phone companion.


    Now, Windows Hello no longer works with YubiKey 4. Windows security key sign-In management refuses to recognize that its a valid security key.


    To eliminate the possibility that the key has somehow gone bad, I jumped onto the Yubico website and downloaded Yubico Client for Windows and the key is recognized fine and validated working with that client. I would have stuck with that client but it doesn't have the convenience of Windows Hello.


    After uninstalling the Yubico client, I went about to try a standard Yubico Security Key. This worked fine.


    I am now suspecting that Microsoft has removed support for FIDO U2F from Windows Hello security key functionality and replaced it with a FIDO2 implementation instead of supporting both because that is the only significant difference. YubiKey 4 also supports a number of other authentication standards such as OTP, OAUTH, OpenPGP, smart cards, etc which the Yubico Security Key does not support but I don't believe Windows Hello implements these capabilities in security keys.


    Can anyone confirm? It just means I have to buy a YubiKey 5 with FIDO2 support but its a real pain for Microsoft to simply dump support for FIDO U2F when a year or two ago, it was considered the mainstream security 2nd factor key implementation before OAUTH and FIDO2 specifications were solid.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
