    I meant to use an "option" not mentioned in the tutorial, since tutorial apparently doesn't cover my situation - my laptop has a string AutoLogonChecked instead of AutoAdminLogon.

    The AutoLogonChecked value is not there by default in Windows 10, and shouldn't be required anymore.

    I have read that setting its value to 1 is suppose to allow automatic sign in though.

    Have just found this old article about mysterious AutoLogonChecked: Logging On - AutoLogonChecked Registry Key Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums. He just added AutoLogonAdmin and set value to 1, without modifying AutoLogonChecked.

    The AutoLogonAdmin string value is not in the registry by default until the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box is unchecked or checked for the first time in netplwiz.

    1 = unchecked
    0 = checked

    So...
    Added AutoAdminLogon - set value to 1. Login screen is still there.
    AutoLogonChecked - set value to 1. Login screen is still there.

    Then I noticed a string in Winlogon -> DisableLockWorkstation - value =0. Hmm... interesting... I retrieved and saved all the product keys of this machine, just of superstition, and changed value to 1. Bingo!

    Interesting. Setting the DisableLockWorkstation value to 1 would disable the lock computer feature.

    Yes. With this string value =0 it was getting locked every time I powered it down (again, except for when I click on Shut Down link in Start menu. Somehow this link operates independently from DisableLockWorstation).

    Obvious solution for a developer, not so much for a user. Have been searching for days, couldn't find it anywhere on the wide wobbly web. Everybody is repeating what the next guy said - Netplwiz, AutoAdminLogin and "set your account to Local" :)

    I'm glad you got it sorted.

    It appears to have been a confusion with the used terminology.

    Mentioning to bypass the logon or sign-in screen will usually get referenced to netplwiz.

    Enabling or disabling the lock screen wouldn't usually be considered for that.
