|How to Disable Windows 10 Screen Lock|
Windows 10 comes with a pre-activated lock screen. Well, the real intention behind this well thought of option is not bad, though. The lock screen protects your personal data from being accessed by anyone who lays his/her hands on your laptop. However, having to unlock quite frequently may get annoying. It could be much frustrating when you are browsing the web, or busy with other tasks.
Microsoft has made it a little tough to disable it. For the reasons best known to Microsoft, there is no easy access to disable it. The lock screen stays persistently staying at you. At times, you may be forced to visit the Dell Service Center In Noida to get the solution to your issues.
