Windows 10: Immediately accept PIN/password (no need to press any key first) Solved

    Immediately accept PIN/password (no need to press any key first)


    It is possible to make it so that when Windows has loaded or awoken from sleep, the PIN or password entry box is ready to accept entry of the PIN or password. I had this setting in place during my previous Windows installation but I cannot figure out how to do it again or what search string to use to find the instructions.

    I believe it was called something unintuitive like disabling the log-in screen, even though the log-in screen is still there, and you're just disabling the full-screen pretty picture that you can have withouit the text entry field on top of it.

    To clarify, I am not attempting to disable the log-in screen; at least not by my definition. I still want to use a PIN/password to control access to my PC.

    Hello THX1138,

    It sounds like you're wanting to disable the lock screen?
