Windows 10: Forcing Login Screen after boot

    Forcing Login Screen after boot

    I just installed Windows 10 yesterday from Windows 8.1, and I honestly hate it this far.

    Whenever I (re-)boot the pc, Windows automatically logs me in to my desktop.
    A friend of mine has Win10 too, doesn't use a password for his account but does get the normal login screen where he has to click 'sign in' first after (re-)booting the computer.

    How do I enable that, or how do I disable the automatically redirection to desktop?
    I've tried the 'netplwiz' thing, but that doesn't work in my version.
    I've tried to find it in the installed Classic Shell settings but really can't find it.

    I really need some help with this.
    Thanks in advance.
