    I'm curious to know the answer to this as well - were you able to resolve your issue?

    Open your Fingerprint software and you should be able to find the settings to configure Windows to use fingerprint scan instead of password. In my lenovo laptop, there is a setting called "Use fingerprint scan instead of power-on and hard drive passwords."

    I'm using different sign in methods (password/pin/hello) and mine always defaults to whatever I last used. Is it different with fingerprint?

    My HP DV7 laptop is using nothing but the Microsoft drivers for the fingerprint scanner. Regardless of what method of login the lock screen is asking for, the fingerprint scanner is active and I can log in with fingerprint. When it is asking for a PIN login, have you tried just swiping your finger?
