    lock screen


    Good afternoon.
    I am currently using windows ten & on start up i used a pin to activate..
    We are travelling for a while & i often just put my laptop to sleep instead of shutting it down so I wanted an extra layer of security in hotels & accomodation when i do this as well as pin to start.
    Yesterday, I managed to lock myself out, but then reset my microsoft password so I can get on laptop again, but now my pin to start has disappeared..
    I really am dense when it comes to stuff like this & haven't a clue what i'm doing.
    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

    • Press Windows + I and select personalization.
    • Select Lock screen.

    • Select the Screen Timeout setting.
    • Select the time of timeout you need and check.

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen
