Smart card authentication

In order to use a contact-type smart card or a Proximity card for logging on to Windows, you must click your user tile on the Windows Logon screen before presenting the card. Then you can insert your smart card for authentication, or use a Proximity card in conjunction with another credential as specified by the Logon Authentication Policy in force.

Other types of (non-Proximity) contactless cards may be presented directly from the Logon screen for immediate logon to Windows.
