How to disable Lock Screen on Windows 10 via Registry Editor

Are you currently annoyed with the login screen and the frequent need to have your password entered in order to be granted access? This method will help you go directly to the login screen.

– To see how this is done via group policy, take a look at this article https://techdirectarchive.com/2020/02/08/how-to-disable-lock-screen-on-windows-10-via-local-group-policy-editor/

From the search menu, type regedit and hit enter or double click on it
– If this prompts the UAC, simply select Yes as shown below.

Or search for Run, in the run dialog box, type regedit and hit ok. This will open the registry editor. – Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in the left pane. – Double-click to expand SOFTWARE – Double-click to expand Policies. – Double-click to expand Microsoft. – Now, don’t double-click but right-click Windows. Note: When the Personalisation folder isn’t available, then you can follow these steps

– Click New and then click Key.
– Rename New Key #1 that you just created as Personalisation and hit Enter
– On the Personalisation folder,
– Right-click in the right pane of the Registry Editor,  
– Select New and then select DWORD (32-bit) Value.
– You will see a new item pop-up in
– On the right pane of the Registry Editor, titled New Value #1.
– Rename it as NoLockScreen and hit Enter.

Note: In my case, this folder is already available.
– select New and then select DWORD (32-bit) Value.
– In the right pane of the Registry Editor, titled New Value #1.
– Rename it  as NoLockScreen and hit Enter.
– Under Value data, change the value from 0 to 1 and click OK.

That is all that needs to be configured 😉
