    Windows 10 lock screen: Office macros not finishing / stalling when windows 10 is locked


    Hi all,


    We have a virtual Machine in MS Azure that executes a few powershell scripts and excel macros. Since it automatically updated to windows 10 1903, the macros have been 'stalling' - so the macros don't complete the automation and it seems like excel has frozen. This is only when the machine is locked.


    What we have done is disabled the lock screen (no screensaver) and not use RDP to connect to it. If we RDP the console session will be locked.


    We connect using VNC (or others like splashtop). This seems to resolved the issue.


    SO... the question? why does this happen when the machine is locked? Is there some sort of process hibernation in place when machine is locked? the other things we notice (that is not so important) is that action center notifications suddenly popup (e.g. outlook notifications) when out of locked state.

    :)

    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
