    Default Windows Hello

    Anyone else using "Windows Hello" to log in etc. I have it on two machines here and it seems to work perfectly giving a fairly instant log in using facial recognition. I have tested it with on couple of male relatives and it does not let them at all in only me. My Fingerprint reader works ok but is a lot more fussy if my finger is cold or damp from hand washing.

    Can be quite handy to register your finger again (as a different finger) when it is in an often 'damaged' state - i.e. a bit damp.

    I often have slightly beaten up hands from various work around the property so registered my main finger in its pristine state and also when its a bit garked up, have had significantly less issues unlocking with it since.

    An excellent suggestion!

    On my phone I registered both index fingers and both thumbs, depends how I'm holding the phone which is most convenient
    On my home PC there's no security, I just find it inconvenient and nobody else normally has access to the PC, and on my laptop I use a 4 digit pin as the most reliable quick and easy login.
