I've recently enabled the fingerprint reader on my laptop running Windows 8.1 and now use it for login as a supplement to my password. When I login using my fingerprint, the default login method is changed to fingerprints, and Windows displays this when I turn on the computer:
However, when I'm at home and my laptop is plugged into my docking station, I can't access the fingerprint reader underneath the laptop lid. Thus, I have to click Sign-in options and then the password icon before being able to type my password:
When the password field is shown, I can still login using my fingerprint, and thus, having the password field shown always would be ideal, so as to save clicks each time I log in a home. Is this possible?
