How do I change the login screen image? (NOT lock screen)

Question: How do I change the login screen image? (NOT lock screen)

So I disabled the lock screen as it's just another unnecessary click to login, but what I want to be able to do is customise the background image of the login/ctrl+alt+del screen. I know you can change the "accent" colour but I don't want to use a solid colour. How do I go about this?

I have the option for 'Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen' enabled, but every time I get to the sign-in screen the only image that is ever displayed is the default 'beach from inside a cave' picture. My current settings are that it will choose images as a slideshow from a specific folder which definitely does not have the beach picture in it, and it works just fine for the lock screen itself.

EDIT: I changed the lock-screen settings to only use a picture instead and it worked just fine, but now the lock screen only shows that image, not a slideshow, regardless of settings. Is having the sign-in screen as a slideshow even possible?

Answer:Change signin screen to a certain image keeping lock screen slideshow?

Set this to disabled, see what happens, but it doesn`t show the ability to do a slide show. I just use the same picture for both.

Couple of questions: Does anyone know if it is possible to have something like a slideshow of photos of my choosing as the live tile for the photos app? I don't like how it sometimes cycles screenshots I've taken and I don't want to delete them. I saw you can select a single image as the live tile, but I'm looking more for something like in WP where you can select your favourites and it will use them as the live tile.
Also, does anyone know how to get the bing image of the day on lock screen? I can't remember where it was.

Answer:Change photo tile image in 8.1/Also bing image on lock screen

It looks like the live tile uses photo's from the Camera Album. If you put only the Photo's you want to see on your livetile in that album it should do the trick.

I can change the lock screen image from Settings > Lock Screen without any problems and when I lock the computer my intended lock screen image is the one I chose, but when I boot the computer up or sign out the lock screen image is always some default W10 image.

I'm using W10 Home with the latest updates. I have the background on the lock screen settings page as "picture".

I've read that there's actually two separate lock screens: a default/welcome lock screen and a user lock screen. I'm guessing the one on startup and after a sign out is the default/welcome lock screen, but I can't find how to change it.

Answer:Can't change lock screen image upon startup

I think it's a bug in the Anniversary update that hasn't been fixed yet.

I hate the default Lock/Welcome Screen image in Windows 8.1. It is like staring at technicolor vomit every time I come back to my desk and I think it is giving me motion sickness...

I'm running 8.1 Pro 64-bit, clean install last night. Up-to-date and I'm pretty sure I don't have a virus or corrupt Windows files preventing it from working.

I tried going into Charms Bar > Settings > PC Settings > Lock Screen > select an image > Choose Image, but that didn't stick.

I tried using the Group Policy Object "Force a specific lock screen..." but that didn't work.

I did find that I can change it to a static color using StartScreenColorTuner, but I thought a picture would be nicer.

Any suggestions?

I am aware of the guide to change the lock screen background image, in fact I have a customized image.
But is there a way to cycle through a folder images and change the lock screen image automatically?
Perhaps using a batch file at every startup so it simply picks the next image in the folder?
But how to do this from cmd? Or maybe there is an app ?

1). I've changed the font size to 150% which is fine on the desktop. But I need only the lock screen/Welcome screen to be 100% font size since on 150 % the font is too big and ugly. So is there any way to change only the lock/welcome screen to 100% font size again?

2). I'm experiencing fuzzy/blurry font and icons for some of the applications. For example: Dell touchpad circular scrolling icon is fuzzy, while on 8.1 it was fine. Even the text in Device manager is fuzzy, while on the properties window of this PC it is fine. See below:-

hi,
first to say: I hope I've posted this problem in a proper place, if not so plz forgive me

the last time I changed my OS, I faced a problem, the drive "C:" root folder was write protected (it was not before, I could easily create texts etc). I decided to let it be in that situation, the problem started while trying to install applications, the applications were installed incompletely or partly installed, so I decided to take ownership of the whole drive "C:". I think this occurred because of Sharing rules, anyway I took ownership of the entire drive except some sys files such as: hiberfil.sys etc. Before doing this the whole operating system was working properly but after doing so, my above mentioned problems solved, but after that, my lock screen image has gone "Blue"! and I guessed that ownership causes the problem, so I tried so many solutions, including reinstalling a fresh copy of windows or trying the method mentioned in this link, but nothing changed . first I'll share my current lock screen image to show you I've changed it, after I'll share a shot of my lock screen blue image! plz help me this is so annoying!

I was a little bit startled the first time the screen saver went on. I could no longer click my mouse or tap the keyboard to get the password login box to show.

Win 10 x64 1703 Build 15063.413 - Screen Image pre Login there too long before login box.

I am not sure whether this started with the 1703 update but it seem like it did around that time anyway.

When I cold boot I get to the image with the large date etc.

When I click I used to get the login box but now no matter how much I click the mouse, or the keyboard, once the date goes up and out, I am stuck with the image.

It takes sometimes 5-10 mins before I finally get the login box.

Hello all,
(Disclaimer, I am a complete windows 7 noob, I've been a mac user my whole life but just switched to windows)
Whenever I log into Windows 7 the computer is sending me directly to the "computer locked" login screen instantly, as soon as I enter my password it sends me right back to the lock screen again. This repeats infinitely. I have looked for similar problems on the internet and can not seem to find anyone else that seems to be suffering from this problem.
It works fine in safe mode though. I ran a virus scan with Windows Defender and it couldn't find anything. I tried doing a system repair from the f8 boot prompt, that didn't work. I've exhausted all my efforts and I still cant seem to find a way to fix this. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm in dire need of some halp from someone who knows what they are doing.

If I go to Lock screen in Settings and select a different picture the sign-in background changes but lock screen background is still black. The only time I see a background on the lock screen is after restarting or after signing out. If computer returns from sleep or if I lock my computer it is just black with date and time. This has been on going for past few builds. Any ideas?

Edit: Found on Feedback hub that many others are having the same issue. I also learned from the Feedback hub that if you go to Settings>Personalization>Lock screen and turn OFF Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen then the lock screen picture is displayed correctly. However the sign-in screen will now take on your accent color whatever it may be. It appears that MS has a ways to go before the Lock screen and Sign-in screen sync properly and consistently.

As far as I can tell this puzzle started when I upgraded the x64 partition to Win 10. Now when my lock screen appears and I click the mouse for the password box there is a back arrow next to my user name. Pressing this gives me a black screen, then my user name reappears without the back arrow and I login. I am using the same MS account for Win 8.1 and Win 10 TP. This doesnt happen on Win 10 lock screen/password screen. Is there anyway I can get rid of this arrow, just a niggle I know but would be nice.

Hello,

Is there a way to shutdown using keyboard only, from the initial login screen? It's the same screen as the windows lock screen.

I have tried all the standard keys Alt-F4, Esc, Ctrl-Shift-Esc, Ctrl-Break, etc. but to no avail.

I know that there is a button at the bottom right that you can click to shutdown, but I can't see it to click on it (long story: I have a two monitor setup, and the login screen upon boot will show up on my primary monitor. There's something wrong with primary monitor so now when the computer boots, it sometimes displays on my primary monitor and sometimes it doesn't. During the times when it doesn't, I'll need to shut down and restart, but at the login screen, my primary monitor is not showing so I cannot see the shutdown button to click on it)

Lock Screen Background - Change in Windows 10

Relevance 76.67%

So when I first got this laptop in January, it came with Win10.

I use high contrast all the time, and have installed various workaround extensions to help deal with my vision issues.

Initially I used a workaround method I found on a forum to change my lock screen, even though it's in high contrast - which was to put the image I wanted into the web\screen folder and rename it. I did that.

I had to reinstall Windows 10 due to a corrupted update file, and while my lock screen image is still the default, and even still visible in the lock screen customization screen when i'm in normal contrast - it's no longer in the web\screen folder, and I can't find it /anywhere/.

Anyone have this issue? Also, I can't rename any of those files anymore to even begin to change it that way again.

thanks in advance.

Answer:System info at the Lock/Login screen: e.g. IP, HostName...

BgInfo does not and cannot run on the login screen. Due to the security implications there are strict requirements for software that can run do this. Malicious software running here could potentially steal user login credentials and that would be a huge security problem.

The only software I have heard of that does this is mentioned in this thread:

Answer:can't change lock screen in W8.1

Hello usmc362,

In Windows 8 and 8.1 there are two "Lock" screens.

The user lock screen is the one that displays when a user locks the PC while still signed in to Windows, and when the user is selected on the sign in screen, times out, and returns to the lock screen. Each user is able to change their lock screen background image to an image of their choice.The default Lock screen image is the one that displays when there are no users currently signed in to Windows or selected on the sign in screen.
It sounds like you may need to change the default lock screen.

Answer:How to set Lock Screen image from right click menu

Hi there Haikgh,

no, it is not possible to add a feature to the rightclick menu to set a picture directly as lock screen background.

There is however a workaround! You can use the rightclick menu to set a picture as your dekstop background. And using a program like decor8 (Decor8 - Personalize the Windows? 8 Start screen with Decor8?!), you can change a setting so that the lockscreen is always the same as your desktop background.

Goodluck with it!

According to these Toshiba BIOS FAQ document the BIOS update can be done with 2 different procedures:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=B IOS&FID=TRO0000000b07

It's possible that you have useed the wrong BIOS update procedure or wrong BIOS.
Well, it's not easy to say why the notebook login freezes. The fact is that the Satellite A100 is a very new notebook and it was delivered with all Microsoft service packs (SP1+Sp2). I don't know if you have installed the unit manually or not but you should use the Toshiba recovery CD.

I would recommend recovering the notebook with the Toshiba recovery CD and then you check if the login problem persists.

I've recently reinstalled Windows 7 due to this problem, and everything was running smoothly up until today (approximately 4 days after I reinstalled the OS). This morning, I attempted to boot up my computer as usual, and it simply hardlocked as soon as the Welcome screen came up.

This hardlock only recently started happening with my PC when I hooked up a fourth monitor to my GPU, to produce a 3x1 monitor arrangement, plus my Cintiq tablet. (Currently, the Cintiq is in the shop for repairs.) When that configuration was plugged in, the computer started hardlocking. After that, I reinstalled Windows 7 over the weekend, and it was all working fine. Up until now.

There have been no BSOD's at all - even with the hard locks, and I attempted to use the driver verifier to see what was causing it, as this is my greatest suspicion. I rarely find that my computer builds have problems, though I don't have the tools to test my RAM yet (would like some help in this regard).

This is my workstation that I use for my art. I would like to resolve this ASAP before the week is over. Please help! ; 3

Two ways a program called displayfusion
or the manual way...

Click start type regedit and hit enter ->right click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and select find ->
Type OEMBackground and hit enter
(the path should be Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background )
(if it is not there you need to create it*right click on background and select new DWORD name it OEMBackground set it from 0 to 1)
Now Double left click on OEMBackground and change the value from 0 to 1
Click start and type %windir%\system32\oobe -> in the oobe folder create a folder named info -> in that folder create a folder named backgrounds

Rename your picture that you want displayed durning logon/lock screen backgroundDefault.jpg

EVERYTHING is case sensitive so copy and paste the names.

The picture needs to be under 244kb.
The trick to get a picture under the 244kb -> right click on the picture and select open with > select paint -> press ctrl+w
This will bring up a box under horizontal and vertical select the amount you want to reduce the picture in %

Have to follow the step exactly and again everything is case sensitive.

a lot of work for something that may change back after updates; overall i'd suggest the program. It cost money but there are a lot of other useful things it does as well.

Best of luck!

Usually the personalise section will contain the main lock screen image, along with the account picture and picture password image (A). Both of these work as normal when I click either image, but when I click the lock screen, I would normally get the large main picture with five smaller images of pictures, that I have chosen or used below it. However the smaller images have now disappeared (B), and although I can choose a new image via the browse button, this leads to lock screen preview image continously in a loading phase (C).

I found the image in the windows folders, it is: C:\Windows\Web\Screen\img100.jpg. Deleting or modifying the image does not prevent it from still flashing there before I log in.

I am running win 8.1 with a Solid State Drive. The SSD is really fast, I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Anyone else run into this problem and maybe have a solution?

Thanks
