    You can navigate to C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy and rename that folder to something else and the lock screen will be gone
    Are you positive about that? I've forced removal of LockApp using Windows 10 Manager and my lockscreen still appears... :O

    If it's only you on the computer, you could have Windows sign in to your account automatically at startup as a workaround to not having the lock screen at startup.

    Thanks - but I want to be able to disable the lockscreen which I could do until the Anniversary Update. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!

    You know, I wouldn't really mind the lock screen if locking the PC didn't give a black screen for 2 seconds before showing it...



    Another solution is to edit the security policy (Win10 Pro):

    I tried this method, and got BSODs on two devices - do not recommend it.
    When does the BSOD appear and what is the error message?

    No idea why but on all three of my pcs, including a tablet, the lockscreen is disabled, even when using a password.
