Hi there, Yoman -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

1) Open Control Panel

2) Search for "finger" in the control panel search at right-top corner.

3) The search results yield you an option "Change Bio-metric settings" under the "Bio-metric Devices" category.

4) Click on "Change Bio-metric settings" and Check "Allow users to log on to a domain using their fingerprints".

5) Save the changes and you should be now able to log on to windows just with a registered finger swipe

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

Regards,

Thanks your answer, but I do not have a fingerprint reader yet. I just planning to replace the keyboard palmrest. I found one with fingerprint reader hole, and if the biometric scanner would work under windows 10, I would buy it. According to your answer, I think it works. Thanks
