Setting up a picture password is pretty straightforward. Just press Windows + I keys to bring up the Settings window and then click “Accounts.”

After choosing the picture, click the “Use this picture” button to continue or click the “Choose new picture” button if you want to try something else.

Next, you’re going to draw three gestures on the picture. You can click and drag to draw a simple shape like a circle or triangle or you can just click to create a tap. After drawing your three gestures, you’ll be asked to draw them all again to confirm the password. If you mess up at any point while drawing or confirming the gestures, just click the “Start over” button to try again.

After you’ve successfully confirmed the gestures, click “Finish” to implement your new picture password.
