6 Steps To Disabling The Windows 10 Lock Screen


Microsoft Windows 8 upwards we could see this feature known as “lock screen” before signing in to the PC. On Windows 8 and 8.1 the lock screen can be customized by adding a singular picture or selecting a folder as a slide show. This feature is still available on Windows 10 but on Windows 10 we have Windows Spotlight, which is a default feature that downloads pictures for your lock screen.

Having a lock screen can be annoying for an example when I turn on my PC windows loads to the lock screen every single day the first key of my password would be to remove off the lock screen this annoys me because I have to retype my password a several times. Another instance would be when on a mobile device such as laptop or a surface pro signing in after the sleep mode. On the surface slide to bypass the lock screen or if the keyboard is connected it’s a similar situation like my scenario.
