How to Disable the Lock Screen in Windows 10

In Windows 10, you can disable the lock screen in two ways. Let’s find out what they are.

Method #1

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization.

Then double-click “Do not display the lock screen” in the right pane.

Select Enabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Note: In order to enable it, follow the steps above but select Not Configured or Disabled.

Method #2

Open the Registry Editor. I suggest you create a backup of your Registry before moving forward.

Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft.

Right-click on “Windows.” Select New > Key.

Hit the “Enter” key after entering the name as Personalization.

Then right-click on the empty space in the right pane and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Press the “Enter” key after you enter NoLockScreen as the name.

Double-click on it and enter 1 in the “Value data” field. Click the “OK” button.

Note: To enable the lock screen, remove the DWORD you created earlier or replace the 1 with 0.
