    Lock Screen on windows 10

    Can anyone help?

    I tried to disable the lock screen on windows 10 through regedit.
    I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows
    but instead of creating a new folder PERSONAL i went to the right pane and created a new DWORD (NoLockScreen) and set value to 1.
    Now when power up my laptop it goes into diagnose mode and I have to do a restore point before I can get in.
    I tried doing a serach for DWORD and No Lock Screen in regedit but cannot find it.
    Would appreciate any help

    Hello Ish, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Not adding the NoLockScreen DWORD in the Personalization key was your mistake. The tutorial below can help show you how to disable the lock screen.
