GPO Windows 10 Auto Lock PC After Fixed Time Interval

Hello EE,

Can someone help as to which settings are needed for Window 10 and auto lock PC after set time interval?

I have Windows 7 working well following the below links:

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1416384-gpo-to-lock-the-computer-after-10-minutes-of-inactivity

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/870464-gpo-screensaver-timeout-not-working

I did not have to keep the registry settings in the links above just needed to enable\set:

Enable Screensaver

Password protect the screen saver

Screen saver timeout

This is working out well for users in the GPO.

Tested and works great on Windows 7 x64 Ent.

Tested on Windows 10 x64 Ent. and does not appear to pick this up and I am leaning towards another GPO overriding it as some GPOs in my environment I do not have access to modify.

Any ideas, tips, or tricks I can try to get both Windows 7 and Windows 10 auto lock working in one GPO?

Thank you

Apply a group policy preferences power plan that turn off the screen after certain Intervel.
The first is to configure a screen saver with the required timeout and a password requirement. This can be done under User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization. The required settings are: 'Enable screen saver', 'Screen saver timeout'.

Or
i will set a powerplan

or
* Press Windows Key, type settings and select Setting from the list
* Navigate to Account />Sign-In options/>Lock Screen />Screen time out
* Change the value as required under Screen as per requirement.

or if you want to go through registry
