How to disable and Bypass Windows 8 Lock Screen

How to disable and Bypass Windows 8 Lock Screen

The Lock Screen on Windows 8, an upsized version of the lock screen on Windows Phone, looks pretty and makes sense for having it around on a tablet computer like Microsoft Surface but it is quite pointless to have it on a traditional desktop. It would be nice to see the login screen right after the boot without having to click to pass a screen.

Disable the lock screen from the Local Group Policy

Canned Statement: Let me go ahead and disable the lock screen for you now.

1. Open Local Policy Editor, by pressing Win + R, typing gpedit.msc, and pressing Enter.

2. Navigate to

Computer Configuration à Administrative Templates à Control Panel à Personalization
3. Double-click the entry called “Do not display the lock screen”, and select Enabled.

4. Click OK to close the window. The change will take effect immediately.

5. To test out, you can simply lock the screen by pressing Win + L keyboard shortcut. Instead of showing the pretty Lock Screen, it displays the Sign In screen readying for you to sign in.
