If you are tired of Windows 10’s lock screen with beautiful spotlight background images, here is a registry tweak that you can use to turn on a pretty dull console login screen.
Open Registry Editor, and navigate to the following location:
Then create a DWORD (32) Value named as ConsoleMode and set its value to 1.
The change takes effect immediately. Next time when you are in a Lock Screen or after the restart, you will see the new Console Mode login screen instead of the normal Lock Screen or Login Screen.
I have to admit, it looks dull but also pretty cool to any geeks who love the console.
