    Have Windows ask for password or pincode at startup


    Not sure if this goes here or in User Accounts etc. but its system security, so.

    I want my computer to ask for my pincode every time I start it up and when it comes out of Sleep or Screensaver. When I Google this question I get 10 million hits on how to DISABLE the login password, but I need it ENABLED.

    But for some reason Windows wont let me.

    I can set a windows password or pincode in Settings- Login, but when I restart the PC it goes straight to desktop, skipping the login-screen.

    Please help, thanks.

    You were given answers on how to Disable sign in. Yes ?
    So, use the method BUT do the Opposite. That would Enable sign in. Right ? Or did I misunderstand you post ?

    Anyhow here is the tutorial on How to Turn On or Off Require Sign-in on Wakeup in Windows 10

    Will one of those 5 options work for you ?

    Unfortunately no, I tried all 4 solutions, but when I reboot, it blinks at the login-screen then goes to desktop.
