My customized Welcome screen was always my Admin Account with a picture and password.  Of course, the user account shows in the settings but no longer appears on the Welcome Screen... ergo, I get logged in without a password. (DELL had been checking something on my hard drive and obviously changed/added a new User Name while they were' working' which they deleted before exiting but then MY previous settings did NOT return) So, I've tried going through the User Settings but don;t get (couldn't find) how to RESET it. Help, please!!


FIXED it... yea!!

It looks like you report having it covered.   But just in case, or for other readers

Look in Settings >> Account >> Sign-in Options   and also under related settings ( Lock screen) at the bottom of the page.

The first place on that page to look is under the top item:  require sign-in

Dell may have set that to "never".
