Windows 10: Can't see users list on Win 10 Lockscreen

    Can't see users list on Win 10 Lockscreen


    Hi,

    I have a new acer desktop with win 10 home version 10.0.14393.

    The problem is after I lock my screen, I can't see the users so I can select the user I want and enter the password.
    Mouse and keyboard are working.

    It's a bit hard for me to explain so I video recorded it.



    When I restart my computer, I can log in, but after some time, like 30minutes or 1hour, if I lock my computer, the problem happens.

    I already tried multiple things:
    - sfc /scannow
    - chkdsk
    - changed the advanced system settings from preffer performance to best appearance

    Nothing worked, it's a pretty annoying issue since this is my work computer, and I use applications that take almost 5 minutes to load and acess data, and I pretty much have to restart my computer everytime I leave him. Leave him unlocked is out of the question.
    And I would prefer not to reinstall windows 10 since it took me alot of time to configure this computer and I don't want to do it again, but if i have to I will do it.
    And I don't have any restore point so I can't restore the machine.

    Thank you all

    Not sure why you don't see a list of accounts to sign in to, though others have reported this problem too.

    As a way round this, you could try turning off the Lock screen and the need to sign in on wakeup. See these Tutorials...

    No solution yet, but you might like to keep an eye on that thread.

    Thank you for your help, I tried searching the problem on google as I always do, but didn't find this particular problem, only similar ones where the mouse and keyboard don't work. In mine they work.
    I will be paying attention to that thread.

    From that tutorial, so I can disable the lockscreen (where it shows the clock), but still have the sign in screen (where you enter the password) right?
    That would be fine for me

    EDIT: I read it more carefully and I am right. So thank you again, I will be doing that while there's no fix.
