  1. 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.

    :)

  4. 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.
