    When I close my laptop screen and reopen it, the desktop automatically opens up on my windows 10 and skips the password and sign in part.

    I was having the same problem on my laptop. My other computers also upgraded to Win10 are locking just fine.

    To fix the problem, I did this:
    1. Go into Power Options
    2. Click "Choose what closing the lid does"
    3. Click "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
    4. Select "Don't require a password"
    5. Save Changes
    6. Go back into "Choose what closing the lid does" and change the setting back to "Require a password"


    Apparently the setting got stuck during the upgrade and resetting it gets it unstuck.
