    Windows Hello PIN and fingerprint Sign-in option dissapeared, Don't have password


    I have an LG Gram 17" with a TPM installed if that's even relevantI relied on the built-in fingerprint reader to sign-in, when that failed I had a PIN code setup 1 local administrator account setup, Windows Account only for Microsoft office productsAfter years of signing in in this way, all of the sudden all those features have disappeared from the sign-in screen, and I can only use the password, that i've long forgotten after relying completely on Windows Hello! probably after windows updatenow without the password I can't reset the machine, uninstall updates, ANYTHING!! because for eve

    Enable Fingerprint Sign In Without PIN Sign In (Windows Hello)


    So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

    Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

    Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

    I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

    And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

    Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?

    I don't think you can , the PIN is a backup in-case the fingerprint fails.

    Not seeing Fingerprint in Sign-in options


    I have a Dell Latitude E5450 running Windows 10 and I'm trying to get its fingerprint scanner to work. At first there were no drivers but after googling for a while I found one and installed it:

    Windows Hello PIN and fingerprint Sign-in option dissapeared, Don't have password [​IMG]

    Not sure if it is the right one but it's the only one I could find. When I go to sign-in options I see Password, PIN and Picture Password but not Fingerprint, or Windows Hello if that's what it's called.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.
