    Being unfamiliar with Windows 8, what do you mean by "draw a gesture on it"?

    Guesture .............

    After selecting a picture you have to draw lines / moovement by mouse on it.
    while you log on next time windows reveals the picture and ask to draw the same lines /moovement by mouse on it to allow enter in to PC.
    This is guesture.

    I'm most familiar with mouse gestures/movements. So, what you're saying is Windows 8 allows for certain preset pointer movements across the login picture to act in lieu of a typed password.

    I don't believe Windows 7 has that natively. There may well be third party software that can emulate this Windows 8 feature but I'm unaware of it.
