  • This worked! After reading comments about how this would no longer work on Windows 10, I was worried that this wouldn’t work, but it worked for me (as of today / 03-DEC-2017)! I recently got the Windows 10 Anniversary update and this article still worked after the update.

  • MS often creates severe problems for millions of people, even where they have not existed before. A somewhat idiotic situation.
    Here is the solution below to the lock screen problem (reported to me by a Microsoft employee, but it’s absent on the Microsoft website!!):
    Press the Windows key (at the bottom left of the screen) with the right mouse button, go to Settings – Lock screen – Screensaver settings. Then in the window under the word “Screensaver” select “(no)”, and also tick the option “Start from the logon screen”.
    That’s all!!!
    Pressing the “Windows” + L key pair will cause the lock screen to appear, but it will not appear on its own in the process of work.
    (This way may not be suitable for all versions of B10).
