Disabling the windows 10 lockscreen on redstone (anniversary update)

When Windows 10 is locked, it shows the lock-screen by default. On mobile this makes sense to prevent you from accidentally focusing the password box and type some stuff. On desktop, you might want to immediately show the password box to prevent having to swipe, click or type a character before you can login.

Disabling the lock screen

On Windows 10 anniversary update (Redstone):

c:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_*
c:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_*.bak

Renaming files and folders to disable things in Windows is an old trick and is usually a hack that either works temporarily or has side effects. Use this solution at your own risk!
