  2. App Notifications: Enable or disable notifications from apps to be displayed on the lock screen. Configure which apps you want to receive notifications from.

  3. Windows Spotlight: Opt in to receive a rotating set of beautiful images from Bing as your lock screen background. Find this option under Settings > Personalization > Lock screen.

Configuring Login Options

  1. Password: Set a password to protect your account. Head over to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options and select Password. Enter your desired password and confirm it.

  2. PIN: Create a shorter, numeric PIN for quick and easy login. Navigate to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options and choose PIN. Follow the instructions to set it up.

  3. Picture Password: Use a series of gestures (tapping or drawing) on a picture as your login method. Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options and click on Picture password.

  4. Windows Hello: If your device has a compatible camera, enable Windows Hello for facial recognition or fingerprint authentication. This provides a secure and convenient login experience. Find this option under Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options.

Additional Personalization Options
