    Exit lockscreen without password

    Is it possible to exit the lockscreen and return directly to the desktop without being prompted to insert the password?

    I already set up Windows so that i do not have to insert the password at login or boot (via netplwiz): in fact when I boot my pc windows logs me in automatically. But when I exit the lockscreen, Windows requires the password.

    With Android devices, you can exit the lock screen directly, if you wont to do so, is this possible with Windows, too?

    If you mean the lock screen shows after coming out of sleep the go to settings- Accounts and Sign-in options. Select 'never'.
