Windows 10: Build 10049 now with Lock Screen & Sign In

  1.    09 Apr 2015 #1

    Build 10049 now with Lock Screen & Sign In

    I did a clean install of Build 10041 & opted out of the need to sign in so that Windows would boot straight up to the Start Screen without the need to log in - don't see the need to do this in the confines of my own home!

    Performed the Build 10049 as an upgrade 10 Build 10041 & the boot up sequence was as before with no log-in.

    Now after some in-build update, the Lock Screen has appeared & I now have to log-in to reach the Start Screen which is most annoying.

    Tried to disable this but without success.

    Anyone any ideas how to disable the Lock Screen & remove the log-in requirement?

    You should be able to use the method in the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign in to a user account at startup. :)

    I've succeeded with both, so sorry to have laboured my woes here.

    I ran netplwiz from Run & unchecked 'Users must enter a username and password to use this computer'Click image for larger version.

    Lock Screen was disabled by running gpedit.msc & enabling 'Do not display the lock screen'

    The lockscreen is a pain. Why do we need that on a desktop.
