Disable Windows 8 Lock Screen

The Windows 8 Lock Screen, the screen that’s all colorful and really serves no purpose if you ask me.  Just get me to the login prompt, thank you!

Well, here is how you disable the Lock Screen permanently.

Download NoLockScreen.reg

Just download the file, execute it, and reboot.  Now your computer will come to the Windows 8 Lock Screen after reboot with only the login prompt.
