    From the following link:
    Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9926 hands on -- making good on earlier promises

    "While you're tinkering with the registry, you might also like to know that there's also a hidden logon screen that you may like to use instead of the default one. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Authentication\LogonUI\TestHooks and change the value of Threshold to 1. If you change your mind further down the line, just change the value back to 0."
    -------------------------

    Haven't tested this yet myself, but the link does show a screenshot of the login screen in question. I will test this out next chance I get.

    Just to post my experience with this little tweak:

    I tried it on my HP Notebook (one of three devices on Windows 10) and when I rebooted the system to check it out, I could not get to the login screen and was left at a blank screen with a floating mouse pointer.

    I tried a few things to revert back but I ended up having to roll back to my previous OS (Windows 7) and starting the whole thing over again to re-upgrade to Windows 10

    So if you are interested in giving this regedit a try, back up your system or accept the risks. I figured the worst that would happen would be either an error pop up and I could still proceed or end up with just the existing login screen and nothing would happen at all.

    I personal would not recommend this tweak unless you have a system used for being a lab rat like I do.

    Sounds interesting, but I wonder if this bug is common or not. Did anyone else experience that issue?

    Once you edit the registry all you need to do is lock your pc. Worked on mine. If it doesn't I would disable it or take the risk and reboot :) But it should work instantly.

    also, although this worked for me with two accounts on my machine, I lost PIN login entirely. I was able to set a new PIN login after I changed the login but every time I tried to login with a PIN on either account it would simply tell me incorrect PIN. It would only work with my MS password login.

    ​anybody else had this issue?

    With the new login i do not see the options for PIN when i just locked my pc. Its prolly not setup for those features yet since i see it on the old login screen.
