But logging in no longer has to mean typing a password. One of Windows 8’s primary goals is to embrace touchscreens, and typing is a pain on tablets.
Therefore, you can log in using any of four techniques:
Draw three lines, taps, or circles on a photo you’ve selected (Figure 1-3).
Type in a four-digit number you’ve memorized.
Type a traditional password.
To choose which method you want, see Customizing the Login Process.
