Windows 10: Anniversary update has a login flaw.

    Anniversary update has a login flaw.


    I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but Just did the anniversary update for Win 10, and have one problem, so far. I use to be able to either start the windows, or wake it up and go right to the program. Now I can start it when off, but when waking it up I had some kind of background screen that I had to click on, then log in the log in screen. I managed with much searching on the internet, to get rid of the odd background screen, but can't get rid of having to click on the log in button. I tried changing the login app's name as suggested, and that didn't work. I can boot up and not have the log on button problem, Have read about a reg edit that might fix it, but haven't tried that yet.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Thanks

    Annoyingly, this option does not show if you have a local account and do not have a password. You have to stupidly set a password to remove the need for a password on wake up, then remove password again. How dumb is that???

    My normal account is a live id, admin. For test purposes I have a standard user with a local account too, with a password.

    I don't see a login prompt after sleep in either.

    This is what I see in Settings in my local account (which does have a password)

    I would have expected that if the account does NOT have a password, you wouldn't be prompted for one when resuming... and the option isn't shown 'cos it isn't relevant in that context.

    Or are you saying that even if the account is not password protected, it's still possible to be prompted for one on resuming from sleep??

    So I'm unsure of the point you're making..

    Hello Maddad,

    This would be the lock screen that you are seeing and having to click on before seeing your sign-in screen. The tutorial below can help show you how to disable the lock screen.
