Disable WIndows 10 lock screen

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a refurbished WIndows 10 laptop, and it appears to have the Anniversary update.  I am attempting to disable the lock screen that appears when the laptop wakes up.


I said Anniversary update because according to a website, the REGEDIT update no longer works with the Windows 10  Anniverary update.

I tried to rename the Windows > SystemApps > Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy foler by adding .bak to the end as suggested on another webiste.  

The Local Group Policy Editor, another potential solution frequently mentioned on websites, does NOT exist on my [home] version of Windows 10.


I consider myself an advanced user.  Does anyone have a WORKING solution to this problem?  Thanks.
