    Enable or Disable Lock Screen in Windows 10  


    Hello superduper, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Yep, step 9 in your post is correct. This won't disable the lock screen at startup though.

    If you have Windows Spotlight selected for your lock screen, you could switch to a picture instead to stop that bit of advertising.
