With windows 8.1, using the Lenovo software that came with my work laptop, once I used the fingerprint login method at least once at work, I could also use it at home.

With Windows 10, using the Microsoft-provided fingerprint registration tool, I can't login using the fingerprint reader when I'm not connected to the LAN at work. Is there a way to persist the "acceptance" of the fingerprint validation so that it will work when not connected to the server? (I use a VPN connection from home, but can't connect that until after logging in.)
