Data security on a personal computer or laptop is very important. This is also an important factor why the default Windows 10 lock screen feature is active, so we have to use a password and username when entering the Windows 10 desktop. This password is useful so that other people don’t can access our computers without permission.
But sometimes there are times when we are very busy and the lockscreen makes work hampered. Regarding this, did you know that we can actually deactivate the Windows 10 Lockscreen, so after we deactivate the Lockscreen, every time we sign out or lock our Windows 10 account, we will immediately be directed to the Sign In Screen without having any Lockscreen first.
So curious, right? here we summarize the steps to turn off the lock screen in Windows 10, as below
How to Disable Lock Screen on Windows 10
Method 1: Group Policy Editor to Disable Lock Screen
To start, hold down the Windows key on the keyboard, then press the R key to initiate the Run dialog. From here, type “gpedit.msc” and press Enter. If you get an error at this point, you’ll need to use method 2 (outlined below), but if not, you’ll see a Group Policy Editor pop up window.
Step 1. First, please open Gpedit or Local Group Policy Editor.
Step 2. Next, please enter the following directory, Computer Configuration> Administrative Templates> Control Panel> Personalization.
Step 3. Then please right-click Edit on the Do not display the lock screen section, then you set it to Enabled.
And after you set it to Enabled, please click OK to save your changes. And that’s done, then for testing, please press the Win + L combination key to enter the Lock Screen page, and now that we have done all the steps above, we will immediately be directed to the Sign In Screen page.
Method 2: Use Registry Editor to Disable Lock Screen
- To start, press and hold the Windows key on your keyboard, then press the R key to open the Run dialog. Next, just type “regedit” and hit Enter.
- In the left pane of the window that appears next, the following folders will appear
- Next, right-click the Windows folder, then select “New” and select “Key.”
- Next, select Personalize the key you just created by clicking once, then in the right pane of the window, right-click the blank space and select then, “New” “DWORD (32-bit) Value.”
- Double click the NoLockScreen DWORD that you just renamed, then a small window will appear. In the “Value data” field in this pop-up, enter the number 1, then click “OK.”
At this point, just reboot your PC, and when you come back, you won’t see the lock screen anymore.
