How to disable login screen in Windows 10

Security is a fundamental ingredient in all our electronic devices because personal information must be protected in a vital way, preventing third parties from accessing it.One of the measures that Windows incorporates from previous versions is the login screen in which you must log in to access the computer. Data , programs, passwords are saved in your session , so this security measure is important.

As for login screens, it is appropriate that in the event that another person is going to access the computer, it is better to create a user that is limited in functions such as the guest user, who does not need a password to enter but he will not have all the privileges.

    In the display which appears as per Step 3, there is no box to uncheck. It just isn’t there in the display so the procedure as outlined comes to a grinding halt right there. I’m running Windows 10 Pro, build no. 19041.450.
