3. Disable the Lock Screen in Windows 10

The lock screen in Windows 10 makes you click one extra time every time you boot your PC. To many users, this feature is an unnecessary decoration and takes them time because they must dismiss the lock screen, enter their password or PIN to unlock the lock screen. So it’s better to disable it if you have a version of Windows 10. Here is how to do it:

Step 1: Type “regedit” into the run box to open the registry editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindows.

Step 2: If the registry key called Personalization does not exist, you have to create a new one by right-clicking in the right pane and choosing Key. Within this new key, create a new DWORD value with the name NoLockScreen.

Step 3: Set NoLockScreen to 1 by doubling clicking on NoLockScreen, entering the number and clicking OK.
