As a security measure, you may want to lock your Windows 10 computer, after a certain period of inactivity, so that when you are away from it, no one will be able to access it – and even you will be able to access it only after you enter your password.
To make your Windows 10 computer ask for a password after a period of inactivity, follow the steps list below:
The Screen Saver Settings box will open.
If you have set the time at 5, then after 5 minutes of inactivity, you will be asked to enter your password, to be able to access your PC.
If you do not want a screen saver to be displayed, select (None). If you wish to display it, you can select one. This setting is just above the “Wait …” setting.
Trouble logging in? Simply enter your email address OR username in order to reset your password.
