    Subject. It's like the patch hasn't been applied at all. Regedit entry is there, gpedit policy is enabled. It's interesting that PRO sku is not mentioned in the description.

    Cannot Display Personal JPG Image File In Lock Screen Background When Starting Win 10 Pro Build 16299.98 (12-1-2017)

    I went into the Group Policy Editor in Win 10 Pro Build 16299.98 and enabled the Force A Specific Lock Screen option to the path where my personal image file exists. This change to the Group Policy Editor did not work either. The presupplied Win 10 Lock
    Screen background image appeared once again during restart. There must be a flaw in Win 10 Pro Build 16299.98 that prevents the use of a personal Lock Screen background image under any circumstances.

    Windows 10 Pro- setting disable lock screen does not disable the lock screen

    I'm running Win 10 pro v1511 build 10586.314

    There are plenty of sites giving instructions on disabling lock screen and they all provide two methods

    One is to use Group Policy Editor to Enable the "Do not display the lock screen" entry under Comp Configuration > Admin Templates > Ctrl Panel > Personalization. Easy enough.

    The second is the method of editing the registry and adding a NoLockScreen value 1 32 bit value DWORD key under the appropriate registry tree

    One such set of instructions is here:

    How to Disable the Lock Screen in Windows 10

    You can also go to Win 10's advanced power settings and uncheck the "Lock Screen" entry to remove it from the Start Menu under Username.

    The two removal methods work fine to remove the Lock Screen at login, but they do not disable the Lock Screen altogether. Applying either method, you can still press Win Key + L on the desktop and it will immediately jump to the Lock Screen requiring
    a password to login.

    So unless my Win 10 pro version is bugged out, this method is not working. How do you completely and totally disable the lock screen?

    KB4016240 win 10 pro: disable lock screen policy doesn't work

    That would be because major changes were made to Anniversary and Creators update that does not allow for that to be enabled unless you are on a domain or using a Volume edition.

  7. Sorry for necroposting, but there is a direct relevance. I'm on the 16299 build FCU, and it still doesn't work! It seems they changed their minds midway to FCU release in regards the ability in PRO version.

    Still works for me in build 17017 as well.

    Just to verify @oh microsoft, when the lock screen is disabled, you should see the sign-in screen instead. If you have secure sign-in enabled, the lock screen will still show even if disabled.

  10. Sorry, I've been confused all along. Apparently all this time I meant specifically sign-in screen, which appears after monitor screensaver or during the start up. I had the "user must enter *" checkbox in netplwiz disabled long time ago. So, yeah, can't disable the sign-in screen.

    Secure sign-in is also disabled.
