Hi, I want to make Windows 10 ask for user name and password during log on. Not only password but also username. I am using windows 10 1809, I have chage the registry and local security policy like this link (https://winaero.com/blog/how-to-make-windows-10-ask-for-user-name-and-password-during-log-on/) but it not work. Is this anyway to do this? Thanks

You can do this with Step 1 below. Step 2 and 3 are for waking up from sleep and screen saver.

Step 1. Type netplwiz.cpl in Cortana Search box > Click netplwiz.cpl > Select your user name > Check Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer

Step 2. Windows Key+i > Accounts > Click sign-in options > Under Require sign-in select appropriate option

Step 3. Windows Key+i > Personalization > Lock screen > Screen saver settings > Check the box to On resume, display logon screen
