I'm basically asking this question:
When I press Win+L, the “Locked” screen (with the password prompt) appears immediately. That’s nice, but not terribly important: I’m probably leaving the computer anyway.
But after I type the password (to unlock the workstation), the desktop doesn’t appear immediately: instead, the “Locked” screen slowly fades out, the desktop slowly fades in, wasting my time, and all keys (e.g. Win+R) pressed during this interval are completely swallowed, forcing me to wait unnecessarily. This is extremely annoying because when I unlock the workstation, I generally want to use my computer.
How do I disable this fade out/fade in effect and have the desktop appear immediately, in the same way that the “Locked” screen appears immediately?
I'm asking again because the aforementioned question didn't have any useful answers, but an answer was accepted anyway. I would like to know if any new findings have been made since that question was asked two years ago.
For me, though, I have my login background the same as my desktop. When it fades out, it removes the coolness that I get.
