    Lock Screen and Desktop Background issue after resolution change


    Hello Everybody, This is my first post.

    Does anybody have any tips where to look with this one.

    I Have an all in one machine that has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080.
    When Win 10 is installed it defaults to 1920 x 1080 with a zoom setting of 125%

    ( By "zoom" I mean the "Change the size of text, apps and other items: 100% Recommended")

    I change the resolution to 1366 x 768 with a zoom level of 100% and everything is well.

    However when I log off or reboot or log on as different user the lock screen and desktop area only partially shows.

    I can still move the cursor on the black area and I can press the items that are there but obscured.

    To rectify the issue I have to toggle the zoom from 100% to 125% and back to 100%

    I have updated the graphics driver already and tried a few experiments but the issue persists and is to some extent intermittent.

    Are these settings or images cached somewhere?

    Thank you for looking.

    :)

    Hi,

    In order to help you better, could you please confirm a couple of things.

    • Select ‘Personalization’, under ‘Background’ option select as ‘Picture’.
    • Under ‘Choose your picture’ select any picture accordingly or you can browse the picture from your computer.

    Lock Screen and Desktop Background issue after resolution change

    Can't Change Lock Screen Background to a New Picture

    The command didn't solve the problem.

    The second suggestion is irrelevant, because I'm trying to change my lock screen background, not my desktop background.
