  2. Fingerprint sensor and Windows Hello

    Hi ,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time. Do not worry, will assist you with the issue.

    Provide more information to help you better:


    1. What are the Windows updates installed on your device recently?

    2. Did those updates installed successfully?

    3. Are you using the fingerprint scanner externally or is it in-built?

    4. What is the make and model of the computer?

    Reinstall drivers and compatibility mode.

    I suggest you to download and install the latest drives for fingerprint sensor device from the manufacture’s website and check if it gets detected.

    If the issue still persist, you may also install the drivers in compatibility mode and check.

    I suggest you to refer the Wiki article by Andre Da Costa on
    install the drivers.

    After installing the drivers in compatibility mode, follow the steps below and check if you are able to get the sign in option with Biometric.


    • Press Windows logo key + I key.

    • Click on Accounts.

    • Go to Sign in options.

    • The fingerprint option will always be visible if there is a WBF-supported fingerprint reader (and its associated driver) installed on the computer.
