Windows 7: Make Fingerprint the default way to login

Make Fingerprint the default way to login

I just upgraded my lenovo T61p to Windows 7 Enterprise. It was using Vista business before. When i was on vista and i started or locked the laptop i was able to just swipe my finger on the fingerprint and it would log me on or unlock the laptop. I have set up the biometrics on in windows 7 but when i start or lock the computer it defaults to push Alt+Ctrl+Delete. If i push Alt+Ctrl+Delete it then give me the option of how to login (type in password, fingerprint, or guest).

How can i make it skip the Alt+Ctrl+Delete part and default to just give me option to scan my fingerprint or enter username like it worked in Vista?

Thanks for the help

Carlos

Would removing/deleting password option on the account do it?

newtowin7,

Generally, responses to a thread are answers, but I have a question. I know nothing about these scanners, but your question made me curious, so I did a little searching on eBay and Google, and found a multitude of scanners available for as little as $10 to more than I could ever spend.

I know that if it were a government or business with high security documents to protect, price would be no object, but for someone that simply wants the convenience of a scanner vs typing passwords, what is the least price required to purchase a good scanner? For me, it would seem to be reliability that would be most important, as that I doubt that I will ever have anybody trying to hack my computer anyway. Of course, it would be easier for them to cut a finger off the user than cracking a good password, but I really have no worries about that.

Just a suggestion.

Start Menu > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Then on the left under 'Local Policies' double click Security Options > Scroll down to 'Interactive logon: Do not require Ctrl Alt Del' double click that > select disabled.

Might be worth a shot

Here is how to disable it:

Secure Logon - Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to log on

I am reviving this thread.
I have installed the software and fingerprint login works fine.
But when I lock my login, I get my usual windows login and below other credentials. I click on other credentials and now the screen shows both my fingerprint and windows login. I click on the fingerprint login and swipe my finger and voila it works.

Now, I need the windows login to go off and show only my fingerprint login. Is this possible. I am using the Authentec TrueSuite on Acer laptop.

Hey,

You could try this article which I found useful during setup: Enable Logon Using Biometric Fingerprint Reader in Windows 7 x86 & x64

Hope it helps,
