    can't bypass lock screen to go straight to desktop


    I have read this thread "Can't boot up without it asking for either a pin or password" and I am either confused by the verbage or it just doesn't work for me.
    My situation is a brand new Dell laptop with win 10 pro. Out of box setup forced me to enter a pin, and I assume this is for a Microsoft acct, because it also forced me to enter my prior Hotmail email to proceed. This created a requirement to enter a pin on the lock screen to get to desktop when booting. I want to boot directly to desktop. Your forum and other searches lead me to use the netplwiz approach. Not only did this not work, but it now directs me to a lock screen that says incorrect password. Clicking that shows my name TWICE on the bottom left screen, indicating that there are now 2 accts. One name is highlighted, apparently a new default acct, and that is the one with a failed sign in. If I select the other identical name, I can enter my original pin and successfully go to the desktop. I have unchecked the require password box in user acct. The user acct only lists one name, not the same name twice. I need help to eliminate what appears to be 2 accts.The netplwiz approach created this problem and I want to undo it, with the idea of eventually being able to boot directly to desk top. Please help.

    :)

    Broken security by bypassing lock screen on restart

    Question:

    Why does Windows bypass the lock screen when it restarts after a Windows update? I consider this a security design flaw. If a maintenance crew came by my home while I'm at work to do some home renovation upgrades but they left the
    front door unlocked when they finished, when I got home I'd wonder what on Earth they were thinking. I hope I've just missed a setting somewhere to disable this.

    Three things I accept:

    1. Locking my computer to protect my privacy.

    2. Windows restarting after an update.

    3. Windows automatically updating, which is frustrating but acceptable.

    But I don't accept Windows bypassing the lock screen after an update.

    Precondition:

    Windows 10 is set up to require a password at sign in, both on startup and on the lock screen.

    Steps to reproduce:

    Step 1: Lock the computer.

    Step 2: Leave the room.

    Step 3: Wait for Windows to perform an automatic system update.

    Step 4: Windows restarts automatically.

    Problem 1: Windows bypasses the lock screen, instead signing in and showing the desktop.

    Problem 2: Come home and book a doctor's appointment to deal with the stress of seeing my computer unlocked.

    It's my first post in the community so suggestions about posting etiquette are welcome.

    can't bypass lock screen to go straight to desktop

    From Sleep Straight To Desktop WITHOUT Lock Screen


    Clayton, That is just to let the option to Lock you device display in the signon/lock screen.

    The other question, might be this. "been away" is a nebulous term, could mean anything, like timed-out and went to sleep, or you put it in sleep.
