How to Set a Pattern Lock on your Samsung PC

If you don't want to remember a complex password, Samsung offers you a different way to set your password which is Pattern Lock. This will require using your touchpad to draw a pattern connecting as least 4 dots in any way you want. To set a Pattern Lock, you will need to do this in the Settings program and have an existing Windows Password. Click the links below for instructions on setting a password up on your PC.

You must have the newest version of Settings (2.5).
