    No login prompt at login screen


    As can be seen in the picture, sometimes after locking the computer, unlocking is impossible because there is no where to enter the password and the screen is almost empty but the options on the bottom left.
    Any way to fix that?

    From the icons in the lower right it looks Shohambs has already done that. These only appear on the login screen AFAIK.

    There should also be a list of one or more user accounts at the lower left, it's this that's missing. Without an account to select there won't be anything to sign in to.

    The answer might be dependent on how the computer has been set up to be locked.
    Lock Computer in Windows 10
    Even though I haven't seen your problem a couple of ideas come to mind but I admit I'm speculating
    Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and see if the normal Lock option is now Unlock
    Select Switch User
    Down in the right hand corner, click on restart
    Once you get back into the computer, investigate methods to ensure the problem doesn't return

    A similar problem (missing accounts at login screen) was reported for Windows 7.
    http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...rol-panel.html

    The problem seemed to be that the accounts had lost some/all of their group memberships. In Win10 Pro you can check on this using lusrmgr. Win10 Home won't let you use this, but an alternative is to use Win+R (or a command prompt) and type: control userpasswords2 - you can even manage group membership here by double-clicking on a user account name.

    For testing, I disabled all user accounts and still there is a login prompt with my disabled user shown on the screen. Next I removed the disabled user from all groups, reboot, and I can also see the login prompt. So I think there might be some other settings that cause your problem.

    Beyond my speculative ideas

    Try logging into Safe Mode with networking
    Safe Mode - Start Windows 10 in
    If you can get into Safe Mode with networking

    Try disabling the Lock Screen
    Lock Screen - Enable or Disable in Windows 10

    If that is successful, create a system image backup and the recovery "repair disc" of the program you are using

    Then maybe we can tackle the source of Lock issue if you wish to do so

    First of all thank you all for trying to help me!

    I've checked my groups and I'm in some.
    I can login to the computer after restart, but every locking after it causes the problem.

    I've asked around, and it happened to one other as I saw, he thinks the cause of it is being in the insider program and then leaving (as I did too), and his solution was to format the pc, something I wish to avoid

    "I can login to the computer after restart"
    Can you login after shut down and then start back up?
