Lock Screen to Login Screen Slow & Takes Too Much Time to Load in Windows 10/11 FIX

If you are using a Windows 11/10 computer and you feel that the Lock Screen becomes very slow and takes too long to display and disappear, this article will help you fix the problem.

Recently, I noticed a strange and very annoying problem in one of my Windows 11/10 devices. Whenever I turn on or restart the device, the Lock Screen takes a very long time to load. Also, when I press a key to clear the Lock Screen and go to the Login Screen (Login Screen or Welcome Screen) to enter my user account password, the Lock Screen is taking too long. time to disappear and go to the Login Screen.

Due to this annoying issue, I was forced to wait a few seconds so I could enter my credentials and log into Computer so I could use the device.

The problem always occurs even when resuming from hibernate. It's very annoying having to wait for the Login screen to appear for me to enter my account password.

If you also face the same problem in Windows 11/10, here is a simple solution to solve the problem.

A. Turn off the lock screen wallpaper on the login screen

I was able to fix this annoying problem by turning this option off. Microsoft has added this option to Windows 10 for customization lovers. You can set the Lock Screen wallpaper or background image to show on the Login Screen as well.

I think this feature caused this Slow Lock Screen issue in my Windows 10 machine. When I disable this option, the Lock Screen becomes faster and I can immediately jump to the Login Screen without any delay.

1. Open the Settings app from the Start Menu

2. Now go to Personalization -> Lock Screen section.

3. In the right pane, scroll to the bottom and find the option Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen. Turn off the option, i.e. set the toggle to OFF.

That's it. Now lock your device by pressing WIN + L key combination and now press any key to go to the Login Screen and you will notice that the transition is instant. You won't need to wait to access the Login Screen in the future.
