One of the neat features that got me excited during the first Keynote that finally revealed what Windows 8 will look like is the Picture Password, a password that will get you sign into your computer without using a keyboard. That absolutely throws those key-loggers out of the window, whew, we finally got something that is simple and easy to use to ease the nerve every time when we type in our own passwords. It’s deadly easy to set up too.
The Picture Password was essentially designed for touch devices like Tablets but it works very well without it as well.
First, go to Control Panel, and click or tap on Users
Then, click or tap Create a picture password, below your username on the right side of the window.
Type in your password and hit OK.
Choose a picture from your computer,
Confirm the picture you are about to use.
Start setting up the gestures, you need to draw 3 gestures on the picture, either circles, straight lines, and/or taps.
And you need to repeat the process one more time to confirm.
Then, you are done.
From now on, you can sign into your computer without the keyboard.
If you want to switch to other login options like password or PIN, click on Switch to Password.
If you want to change the setup, you can go back to the User Settings in the Control Panel and go through the process again.
