    Windows 10 Keep user logged in indefinitely

    Looking for a way to ensure Windows10 keeps a user logged in indefinitely.

    I have set the screen / power settings to never turn off, sleep settings checked and screen saver set to off.

    Still, the laptop returns the logged in user to the lock screen after a period of time. I need to corrrect this and keep the user logged in.

    I am aware of the security implications, juist need this working.

    Any ideas please?

    In Screen Saver Settings, try toggling the On Resume, Display Logon Screen > Check > Apply .. then Uncheck > Apply. If that don't work then try the registry hack (Option 2) ... Enable or Disable Lock Screen in Windows 10 Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
