    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.
