    Lock screen bypassed on its own?


    Hello,
    Recently i notice that i am not being presented with the lock screen initially before the login screen. I don't recall doing anything to bypass the lock screen. Any idea how to get the lock screen back please?
    Thanks,
    Troy.

    Try going to Accounts in settings and changing your password.

    Are you running Pro or Home? Have you installed any kind of tweaking software?

    You can change it to see if that works and then change it back.

    I hear you loud and clear. If you do figure out how you managed that, please post so that I can do the same.
