    Disable the Lock Screen?


    Is there any way to disable the Lock Screen instead so it won't show on startup?

    Thanks

    Hello Luke,

    It works for me in build 10130. Double check to make sure that you do not have secure sign-in enabled.

    Just to clarify that I mean the initial screen that shows before the login screen. In windows 8 it was the Seattle screen. What you suggest does work in Windows 8 as I've already done it but it doesn't seem to work in Windows 10. Secure sign in is disabled

    Yep, that would be the lock screen like below.

    What is the brand and model number of your PC? There could be something from the OEM causing it not to disable the lock screen.

    If it was the OEM that was causing it, surely it wouldn't have worked when it was Windows 8? Group Policy doesn't work as well as the registry. Could it just be the Windows Build?

    Nar, it's not build 10130 since it works fine for me.

    Double check to see if you may have any other policies enabled that could be causing the lock screen to always show.

    Ok thanks for your help. I'll have a look and try to get to the bottom of it, it's so confusing when something worked previously and not now.

    I disabled the lock screen on Windows 8.1 with no issues using gpedit, sadly it doesn't seem to work on Windows 10 past 2-3 builds. I have the do not display the lock screen policy set to enabled but it still shows. All I want is for it to just show the login screen when the PC boots or I lock the PC but that doesn't seem possible now.
