    My own Lock Screen Picture does not show at startup

    After Upgrading to the new W10 platform download last weekend I now have the following issue: My sign in screen picture is no longer available. From the Lock Screen tab in settings I choose my own picture to display. The picture I have selected appears in the correct picture box in settings but when I restart my PC the startup page picture is one of Microsoft's own & mine is nowhere to be seen. I go back into settings/Lock Screen & there is my picture for all to see. I have tried both combinations of "Show Lock Screen Background On the Sign-In Screen" but the result is the same. Any ideas? merlin

    On one of my pc's the picture and selection is greyed out and won't let me change it so I found a work around. Open the picture you want in the "Photo" app click the three dots on the right side and click Set to, then Lock screen.
