    Disabling lock screen in Windows 10 Anniversary Edition


    I tried the Windows 10 Anniversary to disable the lock screen using the Task Scheduler that is posted on your website.....it didnt work for me.

    I want to be able to go straight to the log in screen at start up of my computer....can someone help please.

    Thanks

    The task scheduler works when waking up from sleep. The initial login is a problem but autologin sorts issue.

    Hello Jeannie, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    OPTION THREE in the tutorial below can help show you more about disabling the lock screen except at startup.

    The tutorial below can help show you how to set Windows to automatically sign in to your account at startup to avoid the lock screen at startup.

    Hi, Is there a way to autologin on Windows 10 Anniversary with the pin number instead of the password??

    I'm afraid that netplwiz only accepts the account's password for auto sign in.
