Windows Hello Setup

Copper Contributor

As a user I kept getting access errors when I tried to do something with a file. Usually, Admin auth was needed, then when I clicked on that access was denied. So, I logged in as Administrator. Prior to this login as a user I had Windows Hello working for login. Now as Admin I can't setup Windows Hello. Once I click the "Get started" button I get the error message "Something went wrong" and the window closes.

@thecompprogrammer, some files on system requires administrator level access, that's completely normal. If even after signing in as administrator, this doesn't works, let me know.

For PIN related issue, see if this fix helps you:


Hope this helps!

Thanks for the assist. I sign in now as administrator so no file issues. Although I can't get Windows Hello to, a minor issue. Again thanks for the assist. 

Glad to help!
