Windows 10: Can the lock screen on boot be disabled in Win10 1607

    Can the lock screen on boot be disabled in Win10 1607


    Am I missing something? What's the value of having to click the lock screen to get to the sign-in screen? I had instructions to suppress this in 1511 at http://windows.wonderhowto.com/how-t...ws-10-0162965/ , but it no longer works in 1607. Is there any known method to accomplish the same thing in 1607?

    Hello Bob, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You can still use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to disable the lock screen in W10 1607, but it won't work the lock screen at startup.

    OK, thanks. Looks like I'm stuck with the lock screen at startup.

    If you set Windows 10 automatically sign in to your account at startup, you won't see it anymore. Of course, you may not want to do that if you have other people using your computer.

    When is a lock screen not a lock screen? To my mind the one at start up is useless if all you have to do to remove it is click on it? A waste of time loading it IMO.
    As the OP stated what is the value of it at start up, especially on a desktop?

    I think even in that case, the lock screen briefly appears, but it does quickly go away by itself. This is good to keep aware of, but, as you say, not a good solution in all cases.
