How to hide Arrows and Gestures in Windows Picture Password


I found this setting by mistake and it hid the Picture Password gestures 🙂

I was working on a few performance settings in :

I found that unchecking the checkmark: Animate controls and elements inside windows also disables showing the arrows and gestures in Windows Password.

I was pleasantly surprised, as I had been trying to do that for a while. And added bonus, I get a performance boost keeping this off. I know it’s a workaround, as it will disable a lot of effects for you. But if you absolutely need the password hidden, then you can give this a try. Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Performance Options. Or directly search “Performance” in your search bar and you’ll see “Adjust the Appearance and Performance of Windows”

Let me know in the comments what you think. Is this too much of a trade off for you?

But I really hope it helps!
