Windows 10: Windows "sign in" screen not showing.

    Windows "sign in" screen not showing.


    Hi,

    Is there a group policy or setting that disables the logon "sign in" screen after boot?
    I get automatically signed in without the "sign in" screen before I used to have it even if the logon password was not set.
    When I press win+L - screen lock is there, thought.

    Hello asdf123, :)

    Double check in netplwiz to make sure the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box is checked.

    If the box is checked, then make sure you have a password for your account.

    As a test, do you see the sign-in screen if you add a password to your local account?
