Is there a way to get a PC running Windows 10 Pro to go to the lock screen when locking instead of the login screen?
- Three tested computers go to lock screen on boot.
- Locking a PC running Windows 10 Home (with Win+L, for example) makes it go to the lock screen
- Locking two PCs running Windows 10 Pro makes them go to the login screen.
How can I make it so that the two Windows 10 Pro computers go to the lock screen when locking, and not just at boot?
Windows 10 Pro Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.799)
Settings and Research...
Settings > Accounts > Sign-In Options
- "If you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?"
set to "Never"
Then tried elevated CMD commands to reset Group Policy
RD /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicyUsers"
RD /S /Q "%WinDir%\System32\GroupPolicy"
And looked at Windows Key + R, rsop.msc
Can't see much yet.
The known registry key is already set to 1 as posts would describe:
reg.exe add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\SessionData /t REG_DWORD /v AllowLockScreen /d 1 /f
- Can also be turned off completely also by adding the following key:
NoLockScreen, Set to
Also noticed these key locations; to no avail:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager * HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen * HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop LockScreenAutoLockActive HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\DeviceLock * sub folders HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\WindowsLogon * sub folders
Update: 13/6/2019: Now believe it is likely caused by fast user logon or user switching.

All it did was remove the users for fast login from the menu, so reverted.
