True, but I don't need my OS always playing 20 questions trying to glean
a "personal profile" from me to market.

This screen used to change pictures, but mine has gotten stuck on a
picture of a pile of rocks. The option to change picture has
disappeared, so I am going to try this registry entry.

Good day T,

I haven't tried this one; but it is inside "Policies" which makes me
think the WinAero article is correct - this particular policy will be
ignored in version 1607...

This no longer works in "Anniversay Update" ...
http://winaero.com/blog/disable-lock...-version-1607/


This above registry hack needs a real reboot to work.
It occurred to me that maybe you did not do an actual
reboot. The GUI click restart is not a real restart.
It is an M$ marketing weasel thing. All it does is
terminate your programs. Shutdown is the same way.
It just stops your programs and puts you in suspend.
To get rid of this behavior, you have to turn off "Fast
Boot"


Ah but I haven't tried it myself. I just passed along what I had read on
WinAero (I subscribe to their Feed). I do have a Anniversary partition,
but I don't use it - I will use it only when it's time and when
Microsoft stops re-compiling the entire OS every couple months
(hopefully they will hurry up and finalize the damn OS soon). No one at
work who has Win10 has asked me to disable the lock screen yet; most
never will even if it bugs them...

Just remember the WinAero article if ever the logon screen comes back.
It's a good feature for phones but utterly useless for desktops...

Best Regards,


I just noticed a fully updated Son-of-Frankenstein (w10) that
the registry jack did not work on. Bummer!

That's a rather sweeping statement. Depends on how you use your
computer, if you have more than one user profile and/or use it for real
work with sensitive information...logon/lock is required for my business.


Hi Jonathan,

I see nothing wrong with his statement. The obnoxious lock
screen only serves for aesthetics. It is a marketing thing.

A reboot is required. Works in both Frankenstein (W8) and Son-of-
Frankenstein (W10).

Oh, you means the security feature that ensures ONLY Windows core
receives the Ctrl+Alt+Del keyboard combination to allow a login which
makes sure some malware isn't intercepting that key combo?


Are we even talking about the same screen? This is the side to unlock
screen that you have to swipe off the top to get at the user log in
screen. No CtrlAltDel involved.

Same option as in prior versions of Windows.


I still think we are talking about different things. This
is the obnoxious screen I am talking about:

Thank you.

I looks like we are stuck with it. You can only turn off the
second lock screen

Microsoft giveth. Microsoft taketh away. Microsoft is confused hence
unreliable. Alas, Mozilla giveth and taketh away, too, despite a
feature is much used.

Computers do not make your life easier. They maintain or raise your
level of frustration. When developers aren't busy or aren't behind
schedule, they get dangerous.

This seemed to work on my Virtual Machine. updates ways I
am up to date. But it is a Virtual Machine and things
are not always the same ...

1. winr gpedit.msc

2. Computer Configuration - Administrative Templates - Control Panel
- Personalization

3. In right-side pane, double-click on "Do not display the lock screen"
option and set its value to "Enabled".

I still disagree, but then again security on Windows has always be a
