Windows 10: Multiple monitor lock screen

I was trying to find out how to get my lockscreen to display on both of my monitors rather than just one and I stumbled upon this thread from 6 months ago. In the thread it's mentioned that the request for two+ monitor lock screens to be reinstated was passed along to the team. I was wondering if there's been any update on the progress of this? It may sound like a small problem to have but it makes me sad that Windows 10 took away a feature that I really loved for (seemingly) no reason at all.

I've been resorting to using my NVIDIA surround to treat my two monitors as one but it's annoying to have to turn it off every time I log in (since I find surround mode annoying for watching videos etc). I'd love to just be able to click a button and enable a multi-monitor lockscreen. Looking forward to a fix for this :)

Thanks for liking our feature!  Things shifted around significantly in that world, and that feature had to be rewritten in order to work within the new architecture.  It's mostly seamless to users, but multimonitor support is the one notable feature that did not make it into the new version.

Upvoting feedback on this in the Feedback application is probably the best thing to do here for now.

I would like to display my lock screen on multiple monitors since I have 4 on Windows 10.

As it doesn't work that way currently, upvoting feedback on this in the Feedback application is probably the best thing to do here for now.
