    How to disable Windows 10 Automatic Lock Screen?


    After windows update, windows would automatically lock the screen and require password to login again. I walk away from my desk for a minute, the screen is locked. I walk to the printer for a minute, I need to lock in with password again. This is utterly annoying and unnecessary. Please provide option for user to remove the auto lock screen permanently.


    Please do not go the route of removing options from users. I like windows for the fact that we can tweek it to suit us, not the other way around.

    :)
