    Lock Screen Question


    Hello,

    I've updated my computer to the last build of Windows 10 (Version 1607, build 14393.10) but now I have a question.

    In the 1511 version I disabled the scroll-protecter and can I enter direct my password, somehow I can't remove it anymore. Also was I using a different background, is there a way to put it back?

    Also, what is there new?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hi, if you mean 'can I disable the lock screen' the official answer is 'no' however if you get the free tweak tool from Winaero, that's been updated to do that. (The lock screen is supposed now to respond to Hey Cortana).

    What's new? That you can easily discover by searching the net.
    e.g.
    what's new in the anniversary update
    Whats Anniversary Update

    In addition to the typical review, more has been moved to Settings duplicating the control panel, a few bugs have been fixed (there's a short thread on this here).

    You will probably find the placement of text in explorer for medium and large icons is now left justified (I've posted a workaround for this).

    Well, "Hey Cortana" isn't working for me.

    I'll have an look at the tool.

    There's a hint here about Cortana and the lock screen - a setting to enable.

    Hi, changing the login background is discussed here for example:
    How to Change the Login Screen Background on Windows 10
    I wouldn't be surprised if someone has a neat utility to do this. Some are mentioned there, but I've not read it properly.

    I've searched the forum for you too: e.g.
    Solved How can I change the login screen colour for Windows 10? - Windows 10 Forums
    Solved How to change the login screen background image? - Windows 10 Forums
