    Lock screen not showing username


    (Windows 10 1909)
    When I lock screen from my current login, my username is not displayed to indicate that i am currently using the PC. It is now showing username as blank.

    When someone else tried to login using another credential, it is not able to and there is a prompt that the PC is being lock but it did not state which username lock the PC.

    I have enabled "Do not display last username in Logon Screen" policy as I do not want last username to be displayed when no one has login to the PC.

    I have set "User display name" for "Display user information when the session is locked"

    How do I show the username that is currently locking the PC?

    Hi, you've not said if you're use Home or Pro - your post indicates Pro.

    This seems relevant:

    I am using Windows Pro.

    I have set the following at the group policy but the username is still not displayed when locked.

    Interactive logon: Do not display last username - Enabled
    Interactive logon: Display user information when the session is locked - User display name

    Please check yours match all these. My user name is shown on the login screen.

    Do not display last username
    - I guess this is a translation as it's not exactly as that on my UK GUI

    Interactive logon: Display user information when the session is locked - User display name
    - this is different to mine.
