    how do i disable lock screen


    I have tried every avenue to disable the lock screen. I have a program that has to monitor my computer at all times.

    When I am away from this computer for a time, the lock screen pops up and kicks the program that is monitoring me off.

    I do not have the personalization option in gpedit.msc

    I have that option on one computer but not the other.

    I need to disable the lock screen.

    Any suggestions would be Great!!

    :)

    Disable Lock Screen

    Hi Barry,

    We suggest that you try this method to disable the lock screen (except at boot):

    • Open File Explorer and head to C:\Windows\SystemApps.
    • Locate the Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy folder in the list.
    • Right-click on the folder name, select Rename, and rename it to
      Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.backup.

    Note: If you ever want to restore your lock screen, just return to the
    C:\Windows\SystemApps folder, locate the Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.backup file, and rename it back to
    Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.

    Let us know how it turns out.
