Windows 10: Not able to press keyboard to get from lock screen to password screen

    Not able to press keyboard to get from lock screen to password screen


    Since the latest update (It introduced the slide show of pictures on the lock screen. I think it is KB3124200) I haven't been able to press Enter or Space or any other key for that matter to "slide up" the lock screen photo to get to the password screen. I've looked through the lock screen settings, but I see nothing that could prevent this. Does anyone know why this is and a possible fix for it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay, I think I've figured out a solution.

    What I did was right click the desktop and choose "Personalize", then choose "Lock Screen" and switch "Show Windows background picture on the sign-in screen" to "Off".

    I have no idea as to why this would change anything, but it did solve my problem, and I don't need the Windows logo background, so I'm happy!

    Hope this help

    Oops, no, nevermind. What I did over didn't solve my problem after all. It seems to only occur after the screen's gone black after I've locked the screen (Win+L).
