    How to Set Up Windows Hello to Sign in to Microsoft Account in Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 PC


    Windows Hello is a more personal way to sign in to your Microsoft account using your face, fingerprint, or a PIN. You can use Windows Hello to sign in to your device on the lock screen and sign in to your Microsoft account on the web.

    Starting with Windows 10 version 1809, you can sign in to your Microsoft account with Windows Hello or a security key in Microsoft Edge. This can be handy if you are tired of having to remember or reset your Microsoft account password.

    Thank you.

    When I signed into my Microsoft Account via EDGE - I could not see which tab to click.

    I ended up on a Microsoft WINDOWS Tutorial Page.

    Which led me to links to firstly set up a password and then add a PIN.

    Nonetheless thanks for this article - which got me started after on my wife's laptop I saw an option to use Windows hallo on one of the apps - which gave me the idea of exploring.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...cy#managehello

    I actually made the changes not via Microsoft EDGe but the Settings section on the actual Desktop PC - possibly I have a different version installed than the Tutorial writer or maybe there have been changes.

    I regret I do not understand these things & so am very grateful for all the advise available via these tenforums which I mostly find for accessible and understandable than what Microsoft provide,
      My Computer
