How to make 64 bit registry edits

I have been rolling out Windows 10 64 bit installations from a media package rather than Windows Update installer.
I notice now that the package installer causes a automatic locking screen condition that can't be over ridden in Settings.
It was suggested to make a registry edit to cure that.
See the attachment.
The stupid question is...on a 64 bit system, do I need to make this edit as a 64 bit QWORD and NOT a 32 bit DWORD?
Thank you.

The bitness of the system doesn't matter in these kinds of situations. If you are following (good) guidance that suggests a DWORD, then create  DwORD, which is inherebtly 32 buts in length.

No, still DWORD.
