    How did I remove the post sleep welcome screen?

    Using Windows 10 version 1709.

    I recently bought a new notebook. When setting it up, and getting things the way I like, somehow I was able to prevent the Welcome Screen (the one you have to slide up) from appearing when waking up the computer.

    I want to have my 2 in 1 tablet (same OS) also not display the Welcome Screen, but I can't remember how I did it.

    On both computers I used netplwiz so I don't need to enter a password, and they are both set to never require a password after sleep. I can't remember if I made a change to the registry, or if was just another setting.

    Anyone know.

    Hello Jeff, :)

    This would be the lock screen.

    However, you shouldn't normally see the lock screen if you have Windows set to automatically sign in at startup and not to require sign-in on wakeup.

    If you have secure sign-in enabled, then that would cause you to see the lock screen.

    Thanks Brink, but I've just come to realize that I asked the wrong question. The action that I didn't like was my notebook going to sleep when I closed lid. I wanted it to come back to where it was when I opened it. I finally found my way back to how I changed that behavior.

    Settings/System/Power&Sleep/Additional Power Settings/Choose What Closing The Lid Does/Change settings that are currently unavailable Uncheck "Lock".

    This was sort of a waste of time thought, because in the end, I decided to keep the Welcome screen on the 2 in 1 tablet, and to set my notebook to Never Sleep When Plugged In.
