  2. Lock screen automatically with password

    Hi Kenneth,

    To have a better view on this concern, are you referring with Lock Screen timeout? If so, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Click on Start menu.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Under Sign-in options, click on Lock screen.
    • Go to Screen timeout settings.
    • Change the value under Screen.

    Also, no need to create a pin code since you already have your Microsoft account password. You can sign in using your account.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance and we will be glad to help.

  3. Pin lock screen background

    Hi! I'm trying to change the background of the lock screen on my surface pro 3 with windows 10. I can easily change the background of the normal lock screen, the one that can we swiped up. But I'd like to change the lock screen where I have to enter my pin
    or password: I haven't been able to find an option to set it. It keeps showing the dark blue image with blue windows logo on the right. Any suggestion?

  4. PIN option not available at lock screen

    Lock Screen Image Too Big

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    • Is this issue occurs only when the pictures are set from OneDrive?

    I suggest you to set the picture for the lock screen using the default lock screen pictures and check whether the issue persist or not, follow the below steps to set the pictures.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “personalization”.
    • Under “lock screen” tab, select the option from the drop box as “picture”.
    • Then under “choose your picture” option, click on any picture and go to the lock screen, check whether the issue persists or not.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
