In this post, I’ll show you how to bypass the Lock Screen in Windows 10. However, in order to do so, you’ll need to edit Windows’ Registry. As such, if you’ve never edited the Windows Registry before, I recommend that you make a backup before attempting to disable to lock screen.

Let’s dive in.


Access the Registry Editor by typing Regedit into the Search Bar/Cortana.

step 01step 01


In the Registry Editor’s address bar, type in the following: ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindows.

step 02step 02


Once you’re there, right click on a blank space and create a New Key. The key would be named “Personalization“.

step 03step 03


In this Key, create a new DWORD and call it “NoLockScreen“. Once done, set the value of NoLockScreen to “1“.

step 04step 04

Once these are done, you can proceed to reboot your computer to test out the new settings. If done correctly, Windows 10 would automatically place you at the Login Screen upon reboot.

If you’ve disable the need to input a password in order to access Windows 10, you’ll be brought to the desktop immediately.

In the event that you would like to have the lock screen back, all you have to do is access the “NoLockScreen” DWORD that you’ve created and change the value to “0“.
