When you buy a new Windows 10 computer, it is unpacked by default, so you enter your Outlook or Microsoft account password every time you sign in. This can be tricky, especially if you have a long, secure, and complicated password.
Fortunately, Windows has several other ways you can log in to your laptop that are a little easier. We'll show you how to adjust your settings and how to sign in with a PIN, your fingerprint, or picture password. (Face Recognition is also available, but only on specific Windows 10 systems.) We'll also show you how to remove your password altogether (although to keep your device safe, we recommend using one of the options above instead of eliminating any kind of login)
To access your login settings:
- Click the Windows icon in the bottom left corner of your screen to open the Start menu  Click the gear icon to open the settings
- Click " Accounts "
- Click on "Login Options"
- Here you can adjust how to sign in your device. You can add a login method by clicking the option and then & # 39; Add & # 39; to click. And you can disable all these options by clicking on the option and then on "Delete". You may be asked to enter your Microsoft account password to remove an option.
- You can also customize when your device asks you to log in again after you have been inactive. Under & # 39; Login Required & # 39; you can select a range of options, from every time the system has gone dark until it has been dark for 15 minutes. You can also & # 39; Never & # 39; Selecting.
To enter a PIN:
- Click on "Windows Hello PIN"
- Click on "Add"
- A window will open with the title "Create a PIN". Click on "Next".
- You will then be asked to enter your Microsoft password. Enter it and click "Sign up".
- Choose a PIN and enter it in both boxes. The standard requirement for the PIN is that it only contains numbers. If you also want to use letters and symbols, you can check the box at the bottom of the window.
- You can change your PIN later by clicking on "Windows Hello PIN" and then on "Change". Enter your old PIN and then your new PIN twice.
To use your fingerprint to log in:  Click on "Windows Hello Fingerprint"
- If you have already set your PIN, you will be asked to enter it here.
- You will then be asked to raise your finger and place it repeatedly on the fingerprint scanner
- You will then be asked to do the same thing, turning your finger differently each time
- If you have not already done so, you will be asked to choose a PIN as a backup. Click on "Set PIN" to continue.
Set an image password:
Microsoft's image password option allows you to use a series of gestures along with an image to sign in. Instead of using a PIN or password, draw on an image.
- Click on "Picture Password" in "Sign" in Settings "
- Click on" Add "
- You will be taken to the picture password setting page and asked for your Microsoft password enter account in a pop-up window
- Click on "Choose picture"
- A window will open open and you can browse your photos Select an image and then click "Open".
- Click "Use this image" to continue or "Choose new image" to select another image Select
- Next, you are asked three Geba run – draw lines, circles and taps – on the image. To log in, you must repeat the gestures in the same order and position in the picture.
- You must then confirm your picture password by redoing the same three gestures. If you don't remember, click & # 39; Start Over & # 39 ;.
- Click & # 39; Finish & # 39; in the next screen to complete the installation.
- A window opens. Uncheck the box next to & # 39; Users must enter a username and password to use this computer & # 39 ;.
- Then click & # 39; Apply & # 39;
- Enter your password twice in the pop-up window and click "OK"
The changes take effect after you restart your device.
To re-enable your password:
- Open "netplwiz"
- Check the box next to "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer"
- Then click "Apply"  Click "OK"
