    No Win10 Start screen and Control Panel locked in TaskBar


    Desk Top opens with Task bar and not the normal Win 10 start screen. The Start button only display's a menu when Right Button on mouse is used and the Cortana button does nothing. They have worked before. I have the Control Panel on the Task Bar and it works but I cannot move it anywhere. Clicking Right Button does not give any options.
    I am not certain but I think the first 2 problems only occured when I moved Control Panel to Task Bar.

    Any help appreciated.
    *Confused

    Any help? or do I need to re-install win 10 again<

    :)

  2. screen saver

    Lock screen cannot be found easily either. I did a search for "lock screen" in control panel and got the message, nothing found.

    I eventually found it in Control Panel, Taskbar.

    Settings is not the old way I used to find screensaver, but it does list lock screen under Personalization.

    Thanks.

  3. Windows 10 not locking when put into sleep mode

    Hi,

    Start - Settings - Personalization - Lock Screen (and scroll down to)

    "Screen timeout settings" and "Screen saver settings"

    OR WinKey + X OR Right Click the Start button - Control Panel - Power Options

    -------

    Start - Settings - System - Power & Sleep.

    OR WinKey + X OR Right Click the Start button - Control Panel - Power

    Additionally if you have a battery powered device (laptop/tablet)

    Right Click the Battery Icon on the Taskbar - Power Options

    Hope this helps.
