Preferred Solution: How can I change lock screen by my picture each time I login? (not use Bing's picture)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can I change lock screen background windows 10 by my picture each time I login or each day? Although I like Bing?s picture but I also want to use my picture.

Answer:Can I change lock screen win 10 by my picture every day?

Settings > Personalization > Lock screen
You can choose a Background here. Windows spotlight will show images that Microsoft has chosen. Picture and Slideshow let you choose your own picture(s).
You can also open a photo in the Photos app, click the three dots in the top right, Set as, and then Set as lock screen.

So my default lock screen wallpaper is the default shitty guy running up a hill side shot, and I really want to change it. Problem is, every time I try to select another wallpaper, it gives me the spinny icon and doesn't load, therefore I cannot select the photo. I've tried all the default photos and I've tried saving one to my desktop and trying to get that to load but It wouldn't work. Heres a screenshot.

Hi everyone,
So I've had this problem before and I recall it actually fixing itself at one point, but if I go into settings and go to the lock screen settings where I should be able to pick my lock screen picture or use Windows Spotlight (which I want to use), it says "Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization." My computer is completely independent, not connected to a domain or anything, and I'm the only user on the computer (which makes me administrator). Does anyone know how to fix this?? Maybe edit the registry in some way?

Step 1: Open the Windows Start menu and enter regedit into the search bar.
Step 2: Right click on HKEYLOCALMACHINE and select Find.
Step 3: Search for OEMBackground, which should be in Computer\HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background. If the key does not exist, add a new DWORD value with the name OEMBackground.
Step 4: Double click on the entry OEMBackground, and change the value from 0 to 1.
Step 5: Open Windows Explorer and go to the following path: %windir%\system32\oobe.
Step 6: Create a new folder named info, and open it.
Step 7: Create a new folder within info named backgrounds.
Step 8: Rename your desired wallpaper as backgroundDefault.jpg and place it inside the folder backgrounds (images must be less than 245KB in size).
Now reboot and you should be good :)

Chameleon is a simple Windows Store app, designed to change the background picture of your lock screen in a defined time period (15mins, 30mins, 1hour). The free-to-use application even allows you to create your own picture channel online by selecting your preferred key words.
It searches the Internet (Google image Search and Baidu) with those key words and fills your own channel with wonderful pictures. It does not uses Bing for the same purpose.
To change the lockscreen automatically, just Left click the photo stream you want, then right click in the photo stream to bring up the options bar. You can select your options at the bottom! The description bar at the bottom appears to have been developed for mouse, it does not work with a touch screen.
All the pictures used by the application are from free and public internet services. Download Chameleon from the Windows Store.

Answer:Windows 10 - Unable to change account picture and lock screen

Hi, when I had a problem with Spotlight (i.e. different to yours), but similar in that the Preview screen remained greyed out, that was only fixed when I upgraded to the next build. (I had broken Spotlight and got it working again otherwise).

I assume you have no useful system restore points.

Important steps:
a. What is your current Windows build?
Windows key + R, winver

b. Also please create a new user for test purposes and advise if the above works.

If you still have the same problem with a new user, then I would suggest you either do an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all programs and data or if you are using an older build, consider upgrading to 1709. The answer somewhat depends on the answer to the previous question.

Otherwise I expect the problem is specific to your account, which an in-place upgrade repair is unlikely to fix.

Note: a technique which can help you to recover to a previous good working state when things go badly wrong, e.g. unbootable PC, disk failure etc and so reduce the need to do clean installs, which we continually urge people to use routinely is disk imaging e.g. using Macrium Reflect (free).

I assume you haven't started doing that and don't have a disk image created before this started happening.

Hi all,

Super bizarre.

So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

any ideas or leads ?

Answer:login profile picture revert back to previous picture

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

Hello all- I've got a fairly new T440s for which I've set up fingerpringt reading. I was wondering if there'd be an (easy) way to change the picture displayed on the welcome/login screen. I'm not talking about the background, but the icon in the middle that is currently a picture of a fingerprint.  I looked around at other threads and they either referred to editing .dll files (above my head a bit) or some picture in "C:\Program Files\ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software" which is not a directory on my machine. I'm running the latest version of Lenovo Fingerprint Manager Pro, and nothing in the Fingerprint Manager Pro program files looked persipacious. Any tips would be appreciated. Many thanks!













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Change fingerprint login icon/picture - Windows 7

It's not possible on T440s.  The other threads you read were about the fingerprint software for older systems (T430s and earlier) which was different.  On T440s, it's just using the Windows built-in fingerprint credential provider.  If you were to hack the built-in OS files, it would invalidate the signature of the file and the fingerprint option probably wouldn't load at that point.  So in summary - that graphic is simply not designed to be changed, changing it requires hacking which would probably break things.

Your Lock Screen settings are probably set to "Windows Spotlight" which are images that are randomly selected and rendered by the OS.

Hey I was wondering if anyone knows a way to change the picture for the fingerprint login for Vista. It doesn't show up in user accounts so it can't be done that way and I have been searching  but can't find anything on it. Another thing is that sometime after my computer comes back from sleep it says "wait..." at the top instead of the ready message and the fingerprint reader won't scan anything. If I log on with my password and go to the fingerprint software it just says its loading and continues to do that, I can't get into the options. A restart fixes this and I have read about keeping the computer from turning it off to save power but it seems like it should come back on after a minute or so but it won't work again until I restart. Also if I keep it from getting turned off will that effect the sleep time by much? Thanks for any replies

When I first installed WinX it showed a different picture each day in the "pre sign in" lock screen, either for a second or two or until I clicked the sign-in spot. Since I am the administrator I don't have to use a password to sign in, and WinX seems to sometimes, but not always, recognize this and automatically bypasses the sign-in process and goes to the normal wallpaper background after a maybe 1 sec delay. I am using the latest version of Classic Shell and maybe this adds to the OS "confusion".

Since the last Windows Update some days ago (around 2.3 GB if I remember) it shows the SAME picture every day now. In the Personalization lock screen panel it shows:

Background
Slideshow (I selected)
Pictures
"Get fun facts ..." Off
Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen > On

and "Help" does not help

How can I get back the original set-up which changes the sign-in/lock screen picture to change each time or each day?
note: I will not use System Restore and have to reinstall the last update, as I am on a metered Internet access and limited to 1GB hi-speed Internet each day, without which my use of the Internet at 128 kb/sec is basically useless nowadays (as in, almost nothing works these days at that low speed)

On Settings > Personalization > Lock screen you need to scroll down and turn on 'Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen'. It's very near the bottom, so you might not have seen it.

Sign-in Screen Background - Show Lock Screen Background in Windows 10

Kinda having an odd issue. I use the windows spotlight to set my lock screen. So that it changes about once a day automatically. But when I reboot the computer, it reverts back to some old lock screen image I set manually a couple months ago. If I login to the PC and lock it again, then it will go back to the spotlight image. Not a huge deal, just thought this was odd.

Answer:Lock screen reverts to old picture after reboot

From what I've read about the lock screen it only changes the background when you lock the PC not when you restart/start the device.

When I first installed WinX it showed a different picture each day in the "pre sign in" lock screen, either for a second or two or until I clicked the sign-in spot. Since I am the administrator I don't have to use a password to sign in, and WinX seems to sometimes, but not always, recognize this and automatically bypasses the sign-in process and goes to the normal wallpaper background after a maybe 1 sec delay. I am using the latest version of Classic Shell and maybe this adds to the OS "confusion".

Since the last Windows Update some days ago (around 2.3 GB if I remember) it shows the SAME picture every day now. In the Personalization lock screen panel it shows:

Background
Slideshow (I selected)
Pictures
"Get fun facts ..." Off
Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen > On

and "Help" does not help

How can I get back the original set-up which changes the sign-in/lock screen picture to change each time or each day?
note: I will not use System Restore and have to reinstall the last update, as I am on a metered Internet access and limited to 1GB hi-speed Internet each day, without which my use of the Internet at 128 kb/sec is basically useless nowadays (as in, almost nothing works these days at that low speed)

Answer:unable to customize lock screen, start screen, account picture

If you're using the official release of Windows 8 Enterprise trial, you'll need to activate it. PC Settings doesn't have an entry to Activate, so you'll need to go to the Desktop to do so. The little Action Center icon on the lower right hand side (a little flag) should have a red X. Click on it, and it should say you need to activate. Do so, and you'll get those customizing features unlocked.

But if you wish to display a plain login screen, Open Start Menu, click on Settings.
Open Personalization settings and select Lock screen from the left panel.

Hey everyone

Not going to explain my entire life on here, just a little question.
I want my laptop to have a nice dark theme to it
I have very sensitive eyes and normal brightness hurts very quickly.
So the only way i was able to nicely darken the screen, was to select one of the high contrast themes that comes preloaded with windows 8

and with a darkish desktop background, i think i did pretty well, I will try to post a picture up here so you can see what im talkng about, but im not sure if it will work

so anyway, i locked out of the computer, and took a look at the lock screen and it is this horrid looking dark blue purplish background, almost made me puke. Then i found out that you can change the background image

but

not for high contrast themes.

is there ANY way around this?
I dont care about the contrast, i just want a darker screen, and the only way i was able to achieve such freedom to change window colors and general colors was by selecting the high contrast theme and fiddling around with it.

I saved it as my own theme but theres no tricking this device, it still counts it as high contrast.

Does anybody know if i have any options around this? I have looked around for similar incidents, but nothing has come up yet.

any input is valued, friends

happy holidays.

I just recently received a new Lenovo computer with Windows 10 already installed onto it. Wanting to personalize it, I went into the Lock Screen Settings and clicked the tab to change it from Windows Spotlight to Picture. However, none of my pictures showed up and it automatically reverted back to Windows Spotlight after exiting out of Settings. When opening a Picture and clicking the Set As Lock Screen tab a box comes up that reads:
Can't Set As Lock Screen
Make sure the file isn't damaged, and try again
Nothing appears to be wrong with the photo file, and to make sure it wasn't just that photo I checked several others, including some of the sample pictures that came pre-installed with Windows 10. The same box popped up for all of them.
How can I fix this?
Any help at all will be welcomed.

My T500 got bumped and now when it boots it gets to the Lenovo screen and then goes to a blank screen with a picture of a little computer and a picture of a lock beside it. They are both small and in the upper right corner of the screen. It seems to want a password to get beyond this screen but it doesn't accept the password for the computer or any other option I try. After 3 tries a crude diagram of a white hand comes up and it is locked up. What is this telling me? Is there a word I need to enter to get the machine going again?

I have changed my login screen background picture using Windows 10 Login Screen Changer (available at the MyDigitalLife forums). Unfortunately, the option to Disable User Account picture won't work for me, so I had to delete all the copies of my account pic in the 'UserAccountPictures' folder, so that my login background image doesn't show my account pic.
This also removes the account pic from the top of my Start menu, my User Account Profile, and online at all Microsoft sites.

Hi everybody,

I wish to disable the account picture on my login screen. That is to say, I want a flat-coloured screen, which displays the user/account name and the password line only as I prefer a clean slender design.

I already disabled the login screen background towards a flat-coloured one using the following registry hack:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
?DisableLogonBackgroundImage?=dword:00000001

____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _
At this point my message should end, but since I busied myself with this registry topic, I started to wonder how to define not rename) the name of a DWORD/registry key at all:

- How can I know, what is the right wording/coding for a DWORD in order to make it work properly? How do I know, which expression does Windows recognize? Is there any library or handbook?
- How can I know whats the right path/directory, where a DWORD/registry key needs to placed?

I dont expect you to answer the bundle of last questions, since they do not belong to my thread initiation - so it is still just about the account picture.
Nevertheless I would deeply appreciate any buzzwords or hints you may have in mind, that help me to get a bit deeper into the adressed matter, as I am keen to learn and improve.

Many thanks in andvance!!!

Answer:Removing Picture Frame On Startup/Login Screen

Yes, its authui.dll. I was just looking at that file.

in all 3 uifiles (12400-12403, depending what button set you use)

Find:

UserTileTemplate

And do either of the two

<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" height="0" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,2,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">

<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" visible="false" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,2,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">

I would use the first since it actually shrinks it and doesnt take up space, the second method still uses up the space since its simply hidden.

And as always, back up your files before you attempt any mods to system files.

Good luck.

Hello,

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot. Lately, I noticed my User Account Picture was not the picture I had selected. In addition, the Background Picture for my Windows 7 Home Premium edition log on screen was changed. This happened after running a program that is for exams at school which reboots your computer into a safe mode where the only program available is a rudimentary word processor.

I contacted the company that makes that software, Examsoft, and they told me how to get my default logon picture for my Windows Logon background back.

To address the User Account picture, I went into Control Panel > User Accounts and attempted to "change picture". This is not an option, however, for my administrator user account. It is an option for my guest account. I tried cloning my account without the bad .dat files, but that didn't work either as the new account I had created, also an administrator account, did not display a "change picture" option in control panel either.

I ran sfc /scannow, and it found no errors.

I am not sure what to do. Has anyone encountered this? Can you please help me?

Thank You.

Hi guys, I've had this problem for around 4-5 monthes but have never really gotten around to looking for a solution. Anyways, here is part 1 of my dilema. Lenovo Settings will not open. In fact, it seems to have disappeared completely, along with several "default" apps, such as Paint and Calculator. However, I am able to see them, yet cannot open them directly. View From the Home Button. Oddly enough, I can still open paint, though I have to do so via right clicking on a picture. Clearly they exist, but whenever I click on them and attempt to open them directly, nothing happens. Another issue I have is that the lock screen is stuck on one picture. I cannot change this picture, instead, when I try to change it, the loading wheel spins indefinately like so. If there is any solution to either of these issues please contact me as soon as you can. As you can imagine it's a little bit annoying having battery saver mode stuck on so I can't charge more than 60% for road trips. EDIT: I should also note that this is a Y50-70 I am using

As a keen flickr member I have a lot of photographs on my computer. These are all neatly allocated to different files, depending upon a variety of variables. So far....all is well.

Yesterday my neighbour kindly upgraded me to Windows 10. Everything seemed fine.

Today I tried to take 4 photographs off my camera and load them up to my computer. Initially I got a dialogue box asking me what I would like to do in future when I plugged in my camera - I said "upload the pix to my computer".

Previously they have always arrived on my desktop in a separate file. I would then edit them, afterwards splitting them up into different files, depending on what I want to do with them.

Anyway, this morning, after taken 4 photographs, I plugged in my camera. I then get a message saying "We found 880 photos. Would you like to import them into your picture folder". And the only alternatives given were IMPORT or CANCEL.

Aggggggggh! I do NOT want all my pix jumbled together in a picture folder. I want them all neatly organised into the folders I have set up.

Is there any way I can get rid of this 'Picture folder' and go back to using my existing folders (they are all still there, and all still containing the photographs they should rightfully contain.)

I would be hugely grateful for some help.

What happens if you click Import? Does it give you the option to move them into a specific folder or does it just appear in the Pictures folder? Usually, you can just double-click the camera in This PC so that you can see its contents and you can copy over photographs that you want into the locations that you want them in.

I have an HDMI cord running from my laptop to my desktop computer. I have the laptop outputting audio through the HDMI cord perfectly fine. However, my desktop will not relay the audio through the built-in speakers unless I have the HP Picture in Picture software open on the selected HDMI Input. I was wondering if there was a way I am able to bypass using the HP Picture in Picture software. The HDMI Inputs do not show up in the 'Sound' window through the Control Panel in either the Playback or Recording tabs. Thank you!- Bubbyfong
