- Finally, finish the steps on the screen to enable passwordless login for your Windows laptop or PC.
In addition to this, you can follow the steps on the screen to use the “Forgot Password” option when logging in to your PC or laptop. However, if you do not remember the password, the above steps will require you to perform these steps.
