How to Replay your Picture Password in Windows 10

You can sign in to your PC with a picture password. You choose the picture and the three gestures you use with it to create a password that's uniquely yours. When you have chose a picture, you "draw" with the mouse, touchpad, or pin/finger on a touchscreen to create a combination of circles, straight lines, and taps. The size, position, and direction of your gestures become part of your picture password.

If you have forgotten your current set of gestures for your account's picture password, then you can replay them to see them.

This tutorial will show you how to replay the picture password gestures for your account in Windows 10.
