For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If the subkey “\CurrentVersion\Winlogon” is not present, create it as explained below. Then, create a DWORD value name “IgnoreShiftOveride”, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify the value data box with “1” to enable the setting.

Click "OK" and close the registry.
After a restart the changes take effect.
