    Task Scheduler issue when using Picture Password

    I'm having this issue when trying to run task scheduler "Run whether user is logged on or not" is checked, it asks for a username and password. the issue that I'm having is that I use a picture password for my login. Is there a way to make this work while using a picture password for logging in on Windows 10? Any info on this would be helpfull.

    To use picture password is only possible when you have first set up a normal password. In other words you simply can't have a picture password without a normal password. When a task or other services requiring a normal password like for instance Remote Desktop asks for credentials, simply enter your normal password.
