  1. After resetting the OS I am confronted with the lock screen again.


    I had the machine set up so that the system bypassed all that nonsense and booted straight to the desktop.

    I went to netplwiz and unticked the box to (theoretically) be able to bypass signing in.

    It hasn't worked.

    I am first presented with the lock screen and the have sign in or use my p.i.n.

    How can I get rid of all that palaver so the machine boots to the desktop again?

    :)

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps to try resolving the issue.

    Setting the timeout for Lock Screen

    • Press Windows + I and select personalization.
    • Select Lock screen.

    • Select the Screen Timeout setting.
    • Select the time of timeout you need and check.

  3. Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!
