  1. Login screen has no background (but lock screen does)


    Hi, so my lock screen has a background (that I chose) but for some reason my login screen doesn't. I have made sure that the option in Winaero Tweaker to disable the login screen wallpaper is turned off, but for some reason it still doesn't work. What could I do?

    I'm running Windows 10 ver 20H2, though I've only updated to it very recently and I had the same problem on older versions.

    :)

  2. Lock vs Login screen screenshot

    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen

  3. Login Screen Background keeps defaulting to stock image

    I've set a custom image on my lock screen to show up on the initial login screen whenever I first start up my computer. But occasionally, the login screen defaults to a stock landscape image that comes with Windows 10.

    To clarify, here are the steps I've taken:

    • Go into Settings -> Personalization -> Lock Screen
    • EDIT: Set image to Picture
    • Click Browse... to look for and select a picture
    • Turn on Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen.

    However, no matter how many times I retake these steps, the default login screen background occasionally
    comes back. How do I stop this from happening?

    UPDATE: I forgot to mention a step here in my initial post. I have already set the background to
    Picture, thus the custom image.

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot

    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!
