    I work in education. I would like to use the fingerprint scanner through Windows Hello, but Windows Hello has been disabled by my organization for use on my device (a HP Probook x360 G1 running Windows 10).

    Is there any way to work around this? I don't mind purchasing an external USB fingerprint sensor, but wouldn't that also require running Windows Hello? Are there any other options that would allow me to work around having to type my login ID to log in? I would like to avoid typing in my password in the vicinity of students.

    You should talk to your IT first as using Windows Hello with AD requires infrastructure besides a domain controller. See this MS web page for more info. If you're not authenticating to AD then you probably only need to apply this registry tweak:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
    "AllowDomainPINLogon"=dword:00000001
