  • Hi, 

    I noticed you said not able to enable, did you encounter any error messages? 

    We could enable through  Start  > Settings  > Accounts  > Sign-in options.

    For more information, please refer to Windows 10 sign-in options and privacy

    Bests,

    Hello,

    IMO, this is not possible because of design. You necessarily have to enable PIN first, then only you can enable fingerprint (biometic). This helps users to use PIN as a backup sign-in option, in case if fingerprint fails.
