The lock screen will also show at startup, and when you are signed out and idle for one minute. You will need to dismiss the lock screen to be able to see the sign in screen and sign in to Windows. Users can dismiss the lock screen using touch, the keyboard, or by dragging it up with the mouse.

    Cortana Reminders do not display when scheduled

    Hi,

    To address your concern, we suggest that you check the Settings if the notification for reminders is turned on.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Notifications & actions on the left side.
    • Turn on Show alarms, reminders, and incoming VoIP calls on the lock screen.

    If the issue persists, perform SFC scan to repair corrupted system files. You may refer to this
    article
    for the steps.

    Let us know the outcome.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
