Disable Lock Screen | Microsoft Windows 10

"Disable Windows lock Screen" prompt while logging in?


Recently identify very irritating behavior while logging back into Windows after locking the screen, especially using facial recognition feature of Window's Hello, that after cam identify it's you then to Windows ask you to disable the lock screen. On top of that, Microsoft disabled Group Policy editor to be edited after Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary update (aka Redstone).

The best way to keep it working is by keeping it on and make use of it, you can just bypass it by pressing any key on the keyboard or touching touch screen once hello recognizes you.

But if you really want to get rid of this Window's feature and want to login without touching anything, then I somehow identified resolution to this issue, thanks to some of my fellow bloggers and nerds.

You have to open the system folder of Microsoft Windows for that goes to This PC go to C: then to Windows in there looking for System folder. Under System folder look for Microsoft_LockApp following alphanumeric codes, for example:


"Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy".  You just need to "Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.old" rename it to, and it will disable Windows lock screen.

It will be a little insecure to keep it this way because whenever Windows hello recognizes you, it will enable the login without any keyboard input.
