In Windows 10, the default settings allow users to browse two screens after logging in to the computer-the lock screen and the login screen. For most users, no local screen is needed.

How to disable the lock screen in Windows 10:
Step 1: Open the “Local Group Policy Editor” application on the system. To do this, press the Windows key + R key on your keyboard, and then in the “Run” dialog box that opens, type “gpedit.msc” and press Enter.
Step 2: In the Group Policy Editor, navigate to the following location:Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization
Step 3: Now, on the right pane, double-click the entry that says “Do not show lock screen”.
Step 4: In the pop-up window that opens, select “Enable”, and then click the “OK” button.
After restarting the computer, the Windows 10 lock screen will no longer be displayed. You only need to enter the password to start working immediately.
