On the lock screen of Windows 10, your notifications appear in addition to the time for certain settings. This can be useful, but it also gives private information to anyone looking at your computer. We'll show you how to hide all messages on the lock screen.

  1. Disable notifications on the Windows 10 lock screen
  2. Disable Windows focus on the lock screen

In Windows 10, the lock screen is more than just a fancy picture with a login mask. Depending on the setting, different notifications and information are displayed here. What might be practical on tablets on the go can, however, be annoying in other scenarios.

Privacy can also suffer from an incorrectly selected setting if Windows 10 briefly displays app notifications when it is locked. We'll show you how to hide all notifications and notifications on the lock screen.

Disable notifications on the Windows 10 lock screen

That's how it's done

  1. 1

    With the key combination "Windows + I" you first open the Windows settings and there the subsection "Notifications and Actions".

  2. 2

    In the submenu that is then shown, scroll down a little and deactivate the switch for "Show notifications on the lock screen". If you wish, you can also activate the switch for "Show reminders and incoming VoIP calls on the lock screen". However, it is then no longer possible to answer Skype calls quickly.

Disable Windows focus on the lock screen

That's how it's done

  1. 1

    If you also want to hide the tips, hints and advertising messages that appear on the lock screen from time to time, you have to deactivate the "Windows focus" function. You can find this in the Windows settings under "Lock screen"

  2. 2

    There you replace the "Windows viewpoint" directly under the preview image with a single image of your choice or with a slide show. You will then have to do without the images that are automatically loaded by Bing. At netzwelt you will find countless wallpaper collections with which you can beautify your lock screen as a slide show.
