    cannot disable lock screen


    I've tried using Brink's reg file download to disable lock screen, also made the gpedit change to enable the setting "do not display lock screen", also used winaero tweakers' "disable lock screen" setting but none of them are working, I still get the lock screen when coming out of sleep. Fwiw, I also cannot delete the guest user profile, and when I go into settings>personalization>lock screens it says "some of these setting are hidden or managed by your organization". This build is from an image back up from six months ago that I just installed, and let windows bring updates on to date as of yesterday, its now build 19043.1052. Thanks for any advice. One more thing, the settings app crashes anytime I do settings>accounts. If anyone thinks that is the issue I can post all the steps I've made to fix it, though none have worked. The powershell fix resulted in a message like "app xyz is in use and cannot be updated"

    :)
