How to Disable Lock Screen in Windows 8

Lock screen looks cool when you're in a tablet PC. But if you're a busy person with laptop or desktop computer, probably it will make you bore. Same thing happens to me. That's why I'm gonna write about how to disable lock screen in Windows 8. 

Applies to:
  • Windows 8/ 8.1
  • Windows RT
  • Windows Server 2012

You can easily disable the lock screen from Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc). Once disabled, the lock screen will not be shown when you start up your Windows! And certainly this will save you few seconds.

  4. Collapse Control Panel and choose Personalization.

  6. Select Enabled > Apply > OK. Done!
