    Windows 10 lock screen timeing out.

    Good day

    I have a strange problem and have never come across this problem, when os boots up and just before you have to sign in the lock screen is displayed. Now you have to click or press any key to have this screen move upwards and away...where my problem comes in si that the screen goes away and then just like that the lock screen is back where we started at.

    Has anybody experienced this before?

    How can i fix this?

    I have tried SFC Scan, Check disks with an ERD Disk and from another windows 7 and 10 machine, Safe mode is not an option because it just flashes and refreshes the screen every second so no response for any input. System restore also does not pick up the operating system so no points.

    No malware or viruses on the drive...i am running out of ideas, please help?

    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
