    How to prevent RDP from immediately locking console session (Win 10)

    I'm running Windows 10 on my PC.

    When I RDP into my PC from a Macbook, the PC console session immediately displays the lock screen.

    My screen saver is set to (None), and 'On resume, display logon screen' is not checked.

    I've seen how to exit the RDP session using: tscon.exe # /dest:console

    which ends the RDP session and unlocks the console.

    That's not ideal because I'm certain to walk away and not run the batch file.

    Also, I see how Chrome Remote Desktop does not lock the console session, but I'm on my own LAN, and am really looking for an RDP solution.

    My goal is to have an unlocked console session, that I can periodically RDP into, and the console session remains unlocked.

    Thanks,

    casey

    Enable or Disable Lock Screen in Windows 10  


    Hello again:
    Sorry for answering too late.
    I think all my tests are correct and i think i have drawn conclusions:

    The Method THREE works for me at last. Following the steps all are OK...but there's 3 important things:


    • I reboot the PC-HTPC ... starting the task manager (and the method THREE). Starting too 3 programs (openPHT = plex media theater + Chrome + Steam client.
    • If a remote session from another PC at home is started (logging whatever user, indeed the same -htpc) and after the session is closed (RDP remote desktop) ... then: in amount of time the damn lock-screen appears (and i don't know why the openPHT its closed). I mean: starting a RDP session and closing after, causes the PC to see the lock screen. It doesn't matter what user to use
    • The same procedure using teamviewer (i asume the PC-HTPC "detects" another user loggin in) causing the same as above.


    If a let the PC-HTPC without logging in from another computer, then, everything is OK about the lock screen. Doesn't apperars.
    The question is:
    How Win10 pro is "detecting" this "intrusions / loggins" causing the re-show the lock screen.
    I imagine that there is a normal user logged (-htpc) ... if the same user is doing "another logging" from another PC, the first one user are quit?..

    It's a mess...otherwise, if i remain the PC in normal working, everything is OK
    Sorry if explaining me so bad!
