Windows 10: Change to login screen w/ screen saver in Creator's Update

    Change to login screen w/ screen saver in Creator's Update


    I installed the Creator's Update - 1703 - on my Latitude E5450 laptop over the weekend.

    I was a little bit startled the first time the screen saver went on. I could no longer click my mouse or tap the keyboard to get the password login box to show.

    I finally figured out that I had to press Ctrl + Alt + Del.

    Does anyone else use a screen saver and have it go back to the lock screen? Is there an option to allow a mouse click to prompt for login?

    Only time that I have used Ctrl-Alt-Del was with Windows 7 and before. No need for it with 10. Just turn it off with http://www.thewindowsclub.com/ultima...r-4-windows-10

    I haven't figured out an answer yet, but noted the same as you - Ctr+Alt+Del pops up the login. A bit of a pain as I'd taught myself to NOT do that with Win 10.

    It has nothing to do with a specific version of Windows. It is done as both a registry adit or GPO. You can turn the feature on or off with Ultimate Windows Tweaker from The Windows Club.
