    Did you also disable the lock screen using the method below? If so, enable the lock screen to see if that may restore it for you.

    Only used the winaero app.

    Edit:
    Took a look, but that policy setting was not configured and the key didn't exist in the first place.

    It uses the same settings. It would be worth double checking.

    In that case, you could try doing a repair install if you like to fix it.
