    Win 10 Pro 64-bit

    Have to input both userid and password to unlock computer

    I've joined a Windows 10 Pro test machine to an AD 2012 domain, and when I lock the computer (using Windows + L), and then try to unlock it, I'm asked to put in both my userid and password to unlock it (it behaves as though I'm logging in again. Is there a way to fix this? I've looked in secpol.msc, and under Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options, I found "Interactive logon: Display user information when the session is locked". I enabled that, and tried both "User display name only", and "Do not display user information", but neither of those options seem to make any difference.

    Having the same issue here. It's caused by having "Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name" enabled.
    As far as I can tell, the "Interactive logon: Display user information when the session is locked" policy doesn't work on Windows 10. I hope it's a bug that will be fixed soon.

    So far, the only way to fix it seems to be to Disable "Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name".

    I have the same problem too, but cannot disable "Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name" - as its set by group policy
