How to Disable Lock Screen on Windows 8?
Compared with other versions of Windows, Windows 8 has many changes, including the missing Start menu and lock screen. Without the Start menu, users can not shut down or reboot Windows 8 PC in just one click.
When you first boot Windows 8, change users or wake from sleep, you’re presented with a lock screen that you must drag up and away before you reach the login prompt. While having the weather, time and number of emails displayed on a lock screen makes sense on tablets and phones, it’s a waste of time on PCs where users just want to see a password prompt and log in.
Actually, disabling the lock screen is really easy.
In essence, the new Windows 8 lock/login screen is meant to act as a dashboard, flashing up notifications for new email, IMs, and so on. On a tablet, where you swipe the lock screen away and then begin typing, this makes perfect sense. On a desktop PC, though, the lock screen is clunky. Yes, theoretically you only have to tap a key and it slides away, but for some reason Microsoft introduced a delay so that you can’t immediately type your password. As a result, you often end up losing the first few letters of your password, waiting for Windows to tell you that your password is incorrect, and then typing your password in correctly.
