How do I set up the fingerprint scanner on my laptop?
Setup of the fingerprint scanner on your laptop
- Set the fingerprint scanner when installing the laptop
- If you want to use the scanner later, go to settings and login options
- Place your finger of your choice on the scanner a few times to install it
Setup with first start-up
When you first start the laptop, Windows asks you whether you want to setup the fingerprint scanner. Simply follow the instructions Windows gives you to setup the scanner. You can also set it up at a later time. If you choose this option, follow the steps below.
Step 1: go to Settings
To setup the scanner, navigate to the Windows settings by clicking the Windows logo on the bottom left and choosing the gear icon. Or use the magnifying glass icon next to the Windows logo in the taskbar and type 'settings' in the bar. Go to the settings and choose 'accounts'.
Step 2: sign-in options
Go to 'sign-in options' in 'accounts'. Here, you have the possibility of setting up Windows Hello sign-in options. As you can see in the menu, the fingerprint scanner is part of Windows Hello. Go to 'fingerprint' and choose 'set up'. The setup process will now start.
Step 3: setup
If you've clicked 'setup', Windows will now ask you to put a finger of your choice on the scanner several times in a row. Repeat this until the setup is completed. From now on, you have the possibility to login with your fingerprint scanner. You also have the possibility of adding an extra fingerprint if you choose to.
