MS decided we must like the lock screen even when using non touchscreen desktops, cannot be disabled by the registry or gpedit.msc methods. Anyone knows a workaround? Im running w10pro anniversary 64bits From the local policy editor: This policy setting controls whether the lock screen appears for users. If you enable this policy setting, users that are not required to press CTRL + ALT + DEL before signing in will see their selected tile after locking their PC. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, users that are not required to press CTRL + ALT + DEL before signing in will see a lock screen after locking their PC. They must dismiss the lock screen using touch, the keyboard, or by dragging it with the mouse. Note: This setting only applies to Enterprise, Education, and Server SKUs.
