In the previous article we discussed how to disable and enable the lock screen in Windows 10 technical preview using an easier method. In this article we utilize a totally different method. We like to think that this method is more “geeky” and cooler!
You might be wondering then why should you even bother or care about that method after all if it is going to be harder? The answer is simple, it’s a geeky way that can help you show off your skills when helping your other geeky friends, after all if you’re not a geek then you shouldn’t be reading this article or even be on this website.
The method that we’ll use in this tutorial will rely on editing the registry so you have to take care as editing the registry can’t be undone, so please concentrate and follow the steps to the letter.
Step 1: Type “regedit” in your search / Cortana field right at the bottom left corner of the screen.
Step 2: A window will pop up, navigate using the left hand side menu to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE → SOFTWARE → Policies → Microsoft → Windows
Step 3: Now, you’ll need to create a new entry, to do so just right click inside the “Windows” folder and select new → key and call it “Personalization”. If you already have this key entry then skip this step all together.
Step 4: Inside the newly created key and at the left hand side of the window, create a new DWORD and name it NoLockScreen.
Step 5: Now double click this newly created DWORD and change its value from 0 to 1.
That wasn’t so hard was it? After all you’ve created registry keys and edited them!
