Talking disable lockscreen in anniversary update

many people are not a fan of the lock screen in the anniversary update. however if you use the pro version of windows 10 (which i recommend above the home because of greater control) you disable the lock screen even on boot and save having to press a but a wait before entering a password. 1st press start key and type Local Security Policy then press enter. once loaded double click on Software Restriction Policies then Additional Rules. then right-click on the right pane and select New Path Rule. in the path option copy and paste C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txy ewy . then make sure the security level is set to Disallowed and then click apply and ok. with luck when you press windows key and L it should take effect immediately and on boot.

Default Re: disable lockscreen in anniversary update

That link gives another link to a patch that disables the lock screen on all versions of Windows. It does involve patching a .dll file but the autopatcher backs the file up first.
This is the link it gives:

As for myself I like the lock screen and changed the picture quite some time ago to the MS one of light streaming in through the window.

Greetings Roger,

I've noticed that we have very similar preferences for our installed programs and other procedures.

I too prefer my desktop with the "MS one of light streaming in through the window".
I now have it on all my machines ... the desktop icons show up better with this background IMO.

I used to change the desktop wallpaper occasionally but don't bother now. I don't sit looking at my desktop anyway.

Exclamation Re: disable lockscreen in anniversary update

UPDATE

on reboot my tip is foiled however there is a hack tool that can be downloaded from here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByX...JKSGJ3SXc/view that seams to work for now but before applying run sfc/scannow beforehand it is a case of trial and error and may not work for everyone but its worth a try

Morning, Spit. What`s the saying - "Great minds think alike?"
