    Whose settings are used at the login screen?


    Win10prox64

    Noob Windows questions, or at least it seems like it.

    I'm currently messing around with the display calibration and I've always wondered precisely whose display settings are used for the login screen. When I'm looking at a login photo that is completely out of whack, is it obeying all my color settings within Windows?

    What about the nVidia control panel?

    And how do I tell which Windows settings are per-user, and which are system wide? (refresh, resolution, gamma, mouse, etc.)

    *dazed and confused*

    :)

    Setting the default input method for the Windows 10 login screen

    I had the same question but with French being the default on Windows 10 rather than the one I wanted so I ended up here.

    HoD is very close. I was able to use his suggestion to find the solution for me. This solution uses your current display and input language to change the Welcome screen and possible for new user accounts if you want. So make sure you have the display and input settings while logged in that you want to apply to the login screen before doing the steps:

    1. Click the language on the Taskbar.
    2. Then click Language preferences.
    3. At the bottom under "Related settings," click "additional date, time, & regional settings" which opens the control panel
    4. Click the "Region" option
    5. Then go to the far right tab "Administrative". (HoD's step 2)
    6. In the "Welcome screen and new user accounts" click copy settings. (HoD's step 3)
    7. Tick "Welcome screen and system accounts" (and "new user accounts" if you want it to be applied to those as well). (HoD's step 4)
    8. Click Ok. (HoD's step 5)

    I was able to use HoD's suggestion to find the solution here. It's for Windows 8.1, but works on 10 so far.

    Hope it will help you, too!

  3. 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

    Whose settings are used at the login screen?

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
