    The lock screen displays the current date, time, and usually and image background. You will learn how to change this later. The lock screen is displayed when the computer first boots or starts up and if you leave your computer unattended for a while. Windows 10 can also be set up to allow multiple users to have their own profile and files on the PC and utilize the lock screen to switch to their account.

    To begin the login process, press the Spacebar on the keyboard to continue the login process. If the computer requires a username and/or password, you will be prompted to enter it here. You will learn how to create a password for your account later in Chapter 6 Windows Security. Depending on your computer hardware, windows may permit login passwords based upon a username and password, personal identification numbers (PIN) biometrics like your facial features or fingerprint, or some other password identification (such as a personal password) When you have completed entering your password, please click on the right arrow to complete the login into Windows.
