    windows 10 no lock screen at all.

    Believe me I have scoured Google to solve this with no luck at all. I upgraded (free) from 7 to 10 a month ago and all is going well apart from the lock screen. Sometimes when I boot up I see the lock screen for the briefest moment before I get to the regular sign in screen. Win+L does not result in a Lock screen but the regular sign in screen (Blue window and bottom left options).

    I have tried the NoLockScreen DWord registry option with no luck either. Both manually and as a 'reg' file insert. Lock screen is set on via settings and I can select Spotlight, background images and apps to show etc.

    I do not have Gpedit.msc as I have the Home version of Win 10.

    Any idea what might be amiss?

    Murphy's Law dictates that when you post for a solution you instantly find it yourself.

    Turns out that Dell Face Recognition Access software disables the Lock Screen. I never use it so uninstalled it on the off chance.
