Setting Up "Windows Hello" or "Finger Print Login" in Windows 11 (Video and Graphical Tutorial)

in Information Gateway5 months ago


Do you have a laptop with a finger sensor? If yes, then I do recommend enabling Windows Hello or Finger Print login on your laptop. Before I set up Windows Hello I am using PIN as my way of logging in to my laptop. Now that I have already set up Windows Hello I found out that it is easier to log in to your Windows just by placing your finger into the fingerprint sensor.

In this blog, I provided a video and graphical tutorial on how to enable Windows Hello on your Windows 11 machine. Below is the video tutorial that I made and just next to the video is the graphical tutorial that I made that I based on the video. I made this tutorial as straightforward and as short as possible so enjoy the tutorial. The difficulty of this tutorial is BASIC.

Below is the video tutorial, and next to the video is the graphical tutorial...

Below is the graphical tutorial based on the video above...

1. On your computer go to "Settings" then click "Accounts"


2. Click "Fingerprint recognition (Windows Hello)"


3. Click "Setup"


4. Click "Get started"


5. You will be asked to enter your PIN or password


6. At this point, you are instructed to rest and lift your finger repeatedly so that it will be recorded


7. Repeatedly life and rest your finger on the fingerprint sensor


8. After that, you need to click "Next" to scan your fingerprint at different angles


9. At this point, you are asked to repeatedly lift and rest your finger on the sensor at different angles so that the edges of your finger will be captured


10. After that, you are done, click "Add another finger" to add another



That is all for now guys, catch you up with the next one. Wishing you all safety, good health, and abundance.

I currently don't have that fingerprint sensor in my laptop but it is worth knowing how to set it up.

Thanks for sharing.


You're welcome and have a nice day ahead.

My laptop is not eligible for Win11 upgrade, gonna save up to buy another 🥲

Same here, my old laptop was Windows 7. But I used Windows 10 when I was working in an office. I would say that Windows 11 is a great upgrade from Windows 10. I am sure you are going to love Windows 11 just like me. Good afternoon and have a nice day ahead.
