The lock screen in Windows 8.1 has a lot more features than in the previous version — for instance, creating a lock screen photo slideshow. But If you want a faster way to get into the system when logging in, one option is to disable the Lock Screen.
Note: This tweak requires you to make a change in Local Group Policy Editor which is only available in the Pro version of Windows 8.1.
First hit Windows Key + R to bring up the Run dialog and type: gpedit.msc
Next, navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization. Then in the left panel under Setting, double click on Do not display the lock screen.
Change it from Not Configured to Enabled. Click OK to save the setting.
Next time you restart your computer or device, you won’t see the lock screen — just the login screen. Disabling the lock screen only saves you a click or flick of the screen, but if you don’t use it, and time is essential, disabling it is easy.Tags: Software,Technology
