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
