Default Tip: bypass lock screen on boot up

Hi All,

A customer of mine hates that lock screen when you
boot up. She asked me to make it go straight to the
user log-on dialog, so ...


REGEDIT4

; http://www.ricksdailytips.com/disabl...in-windows-10/
; Windows10: bypass the Lock Screen and go straight to the Login Screen
; requires a reboot

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\Personalization]
"NoLockScreen"=dword:00000001



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

Have fun!

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?

Doesn't seem to be an issue on other version of Windows.

And since when does malware ever get stopped by M$'s dismal
security features.

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.

Hi B00ze,

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"

Try
winr shutdown.exe /r /f /t 00

/r reboot
/f terminate your programs
/t 00 wait time before rebooting ("00 means "right now")

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...

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,

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.

My bad, I meant the LOCK screen, not the LOGON screen (damn these so
similar terms!) The LOCK screen is just there to show you nice pictures,
the time of day, news snipets, etc. When you then press a key it goes
away and the real LOGON screen appears. I agree, the LOGON screen is
required, but not the LOCK screen...

I just configured it to show one of MY images, rather than having MS
pester me "you you like this picture" bs.

security features.


Have the OS intercept the keyboard scan codes at the kernel level to
prevent ANY other process from grabbing the Ctrl+Alt+Del keystroke
guarantees that the login dialog is the one from the OS, not by malware
pretending to be the login dialog to steal your login credentials.

Obviously if you remove the security barriers than YOU made it easier
for malware to do its nasty work, and even make it easier for the less
robust malware. No, a chain link fence won't keep out the burglars but
leaving the gate unlocked makes it a lot easier for them.

Of course, if you grant physical access to the computer then security is
out the window for ALL operating systems.
