        I've just tried and is still not working. The registry key is already set to zero and I still can't see the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" checkbox. Very frustrating…

          Try Start Button>Settings>Accounts>Sign-in options>Under option Require sign-in,, "If you've been away, when should Windows requires you to sign in again?" change drop down from "When PC wakes up from sleep" to "Never" then repeat the steps again from netplwiz, You should find that you now have the option to uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"

            I'm having the same issue. I manually entered in the registry key for PasswordLess and Device, then entered and set the DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion to 0. Also added Freeman's suggestion to turn of the login requirement for "When PC wakes up from sleep". Still not getting the check box.
