In tech giant Microsoft’s newest operating system Windows 10, the lock screen is a nice feature that is displayed with a fancy background. It is the additional screen that you see when you lock your computer. It also appears at startup, or shows when you are signed out and idle for one minute. To dismiss the lock screen in Windows 10, you can use touch, your keyboard or drag it up with the mouse. In fact, the lock screen doesn’t bring any additional functionality. It exists for entertainment purposes only. Therefore, if you find the lock screen in Windows 10 useless, you can disable it to save time and a click. Here is how to do that:

Step 1: Open Registry Editor.
In the first step, you right-click the Start button and choose Run from the menu.
In the search bar, type Regedit and click OK. Then you click Yes if you receive a warning from User Account Control.

Step 2: In the windows Registry Editor, navigate  to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindows.

Step 3: Create a new registry key and name it Personalization if one doesn’t already exist.
To create the ky, you right-click in the right pane of the Registry Editor, choose New and select Key from the menu. Then you rename the key to Personalization.

You create a new key and name it Personalization.

Step 4: In the Personalization folder, you right-click in the right pane and choose New and then choose DWORD (32-bit) Value. Next, you name the new value NoLockScreen.

Step 5: Double-click NoLockScreen and set NoLockScreen to 1 and then click OK. Now you can exit out of the Registry Editor and reboot your Windows 10 PC. There will be no lock screen to greet you this time.
