  • How to Disable Lock Screen in Windows 8?

    Awesome tutorial from askvg.com

    There are many people who don't like this new lock screen. Its useless for them as it doesn't do anything special. Lock screen might look good on smartphones and tablets but its of no use in Desktops and laptops. Also it requires an extra step to unlock the locked PC. If you also one of those Windows 8 users who don't like the lock screen and want to disable it, this tutorial will help you.

    Today in this tutorial, we are going to tell you how to turn off the lock screen in Windows 8? By following this guide, you'll no longer see the lock screen in Windows 8.


    By default, Windows 8 doesn't provide any option to disable lock screen but you can use following 2 methods to disable it:


    METHOD 1: Using Group Policy Editor
    METHOD 2: Using Registry Editor


    So without wasting time, lets start the tutorial:

    METHOD 1: Using Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc)

    1. Press "WIN+R" key combination to launch RUN dialog box then type gpedit.msc and press Enter. It'll open Group Policy Editor.


    2. Now go to:

    Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization

    3. In right-side pane, double-click on "Do not display the lock screen" option and set its value to "Enabled".

    That's it. It'll immediately disable lock screen in Windows 8. If you want to enable lock screen again, set the value to Not configured.


    METHOD 2: Using Registry Editor (regedit)

    If you don't want to use Group Policy Editor or can't use it, you can do the same thing using Registry Editor. Just follow these simple steps:


    1. Press "WIN+R" key combination to launch RUN dialog box then type regedit and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.


    2. Now go to following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization

    If the above key doesn't exist, you'll need to create it manually.


    3. Select Personalization key and in right-side pane, create a new DWORD NoLockScreen and set its value to 1

    4. Close Registry Editor and log off or restart Windows to take effect. It'll completely turn off lock screen.


    If you want to restore lock screen in future, just delete the DWORD or set its value to 0.


    NOTE: If you don't want to edit Registry yourself, you can download following ready-made Registry script which will do the task automatically. Just download the ZIP file, extract it and run the extracted REG file:
