Heh. Not only would a snipping tool not work unless I were already logged in, as seen above (click the link to the other thread), there is no longer a log-in screen (picture me happy)...
You do not have to log in to take a picture of the screen. That is what Cellphone Cameras are for. You can also see them in the Administrative tools for Computer Management under Users & Groups.
There is a fix to get rid of the extra Lock screen. As for no password to log in. It can open the machine up to any malware that is looking at a a no password login.
