    Lock & Sign-in screen

    When I turn on my computer, a picture of a lone backpack on a mountain w/a lake is shown (picture 1).
    When I move my mouse to bring up the screen where I can choose an account, I get the same screen.
    This also happens when I'm in Windows & lock the screen (which I rarely do).

    In Settings>Personalization>Lock Screen, I've changed this to Slideshow & chose a folder which does NOT include picture 1. But a preview is not shown of the files in this folder (picture 2).

    1. Why is picture 1 still being shown?
    2. Why is the Preview not working?


  2. Sign on

    How do I switch sign on screens from other user to user?

    Lock & Sign-in screen

    Hi, noting your specs refer to Win 7, which is your Windows build?

    I too had that problem where the Preview was greyed out- I'd fiddled with the lock screen and Spotlight, broken it, then managed somehow to get Spotlight working, but Preview was greyed out.

    Only when I upgraded to the next build did it start working normally again.

    I suspect spotlight is broken again after the fall update. If I dislike a photo it reverts to that backpack photo & I have to run Brink’s fix to get a fresh photo. Not complaining though.

  6. Good luck, I have been trying to do it ever since 10 was released, always without a success. Darn MS. *Mad

    I have disabled it, if I can not have it my way, I prefer a solid color instead.

    Code: reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Personalization" /v "NoLockScreen" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System" /v "DisableLogonBackgroundImage" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f[/quote]
