    Cannot disable lock screen, gpedi.msc not woring


    Ok so, I have followed the directions for disabling the ever annoying lock screen using gpedit.msc. I actually tried it on both of my Windows 8 laptops, with the same result. Windows cannot find gpedit.msc . Is there anything else I can do?
