How To Disable lock screen on windows 10:

Follow these steps carefully to Disable lock screen windows 10.

 

Method 1:  Use Group Policy Editor to Disable the Lock Screen

 

To get started, hold down the Windows button on your keyboard, then press the Rkey to launch the Run dialog. From here, type “gpedit.msc” and press Enter. If you get an error message at this point, you’ll have to use Method 2 (outlined below), but otherwise, you should see the Group Policy Editor window pop up.

 

gpedit.msc

 

In the Group Policy Editor now, expand the Computer Configuration folder tree in the left pane of the window. From here, expand the Administrative Templates and Control Panel subfolders, then click the Personalization folder to select it. Next, double-click the entry in the right pane of this window that says “Do not display the lock screen.”

Method 2: Use Registry Editor to Disable the Lock Screen

 

Some versions of Windows 10 do not include the Group Policy Editor program, so if typing “gpedit.msc” into the Run dialog on your computer caused an error, this is likely the reason. Don’t panic, because this second method will remove the lock screen on all versions of Windows 10.

To begin, press and hold the Windows button on your keyboard, then hit the R key to open the Run dialog. Next, simply type “regedit” and hit Enter.

Note on Disabling the Windows 10 Login Screen & Password Prompt:

On a related note, it is possible to disable the Windows 10 login screen so that you don’t have to enter a password after booting your PC, but that subject would warrant a separate tutorial, and it comes with one big downside: If you disable the password prompt and login screen on Windows 10, you’ll lose the ability to sync settings and data across all of your Windows devices.
