    Possible way to get round lockscreen problem

    Just seen this as a workaround for lock screen problem. No idea if it works but going to try it.

    Disable Win10 AU lock screen : Windows10

    Edit: What do you know it works when I followed it!

    The bit that got it working was how to do the regedit (copied from a reply by danskeman)

    I too have the issue about no link to disable password on wakeup anymore.

    Still, with local login and no password, I only have to press enter now - much better.

    Video Showing How To Remove Lockscreen From AU.

    This method works on some devices. Cannot guarantee it in all cases.

    Important : Credit for this goes to user jakegh on Windows 10

    Basically, you just set a scheduled task to set a regedit entry back to zero that keeps getting set to 1 since the AU upgrade.

    I have produced a short video showing how to do it.


    The registry key line to paste in arguments box is as follows:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\SessionData /t REG_DWORD /v AllowLockScreen /d 0 /f
