Windows 7: No more start up screen.

No more start up screen.

Before I, when ever I start up my laptop, or open it up and wake it up from sleep, it would go to a blue screen with my user picture, and I needed to typed in a password to unlock it. Now it goes right to the desktop. I don't know what changed, but I want it to go to the lock screen with my password. Can anyone help me?

Type "Sleep" into windows search.

Then select "Require A Password When Windows Wakes"

Make sure your settings are set to require a password.

Have you removed the password from your account?

I did have a pass set, but for some reason my computer wouldn't lock. Luckily the above user saved the day.

Glad you got it all figured out. For future reference, here is a resource that describes how to change power plan options / settings - How do I change the password requirement when my computer wakes from sleep?.
