I have seen that lock screen button does not appear in right top bar options.

Apparently, no problems on news user, only on the user created from the installer.

This issue is maintained after some upgrades in the default user.

Provided to show the issue. The lock button is not showed as in other users newly created.

It seems it was disabled by default in my session. (The first picture is after enabled it)

@EchedeyLR Do I understand you correctly that this issue is solved by now?

I am not participating here since almost 2 years already.

However, I forgot to check if I could disable or remove my account.

The problem was solved with that solution but I am sure that the behaviour was in a default installation and expected to be documented or double checked.

Thanks for responding despite having moved on. Hope you enjoy whereever you've gone now :-)

Please do tell if you want us to remove oyur account (I don't know how to do that myself but will pass that on if you want your account deleted and cannot locate a way to do it yourself).
