Just like the other hidden item, the clock and calendar widget, there’s more stuff tucked away in the Windows 10 January Technical

There’s also a hidden login screen.

To enable this feature in your install of Windows 10, once again it’s easy as long as you know how to tweak the registry.

With that being said, only proceed if you have experience adding values to the registry because if you do this incorrectly, it can break your install of Windows 10.

Here are the steps

• Open Regedit.exe

• Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

• \Authentication\LogonUI\TestHooks

• Double click on ‘Threshold’ and change the value to 1

• Close Regedit.exe

After making the edit, you can should be able to go back to the login screen and see the updated visuals that include a new location for the lock-screen icons and a round user icon.
