    Login Screen VS Lock Screen Re: Change Login Screen Picture After Boot


    win 10 pro 1709. Home computer. In the 3 plus months since I have had the notebook I have never used the lock screen. I do use the login screen each and every time I power up (I believe I know I can do away with the log in screen but I like it) and I am greeted by the same custom image I have choose (not MS.) I also believe I know that you can change the lock screen picture using Windows Spotlight which I do not want to do even if it applies to the login screen and not the lock screen. Bottom line is I want to have a folder that has pictures of my choosing that rotate (random is fine) each and every time I do either a cold boot up or a warm restart. I don't care if they also apply to the lock screen as long as each time I restart or boot up the log in screen picture changes from those that are in a folder of my choosing. Can I do this preferably with out a third party app but I would be willing to entertain a third party app if I can not do this with win 10. Thanks.

    You can configure Spotlight on the lock screen (Configure Windows Spotlight on the lock screen (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs) so there's got to be a way to put a rotating photo series there, too. Yes, it says in "Personalize your lock screen" that you can use a slide show on the lockscreen, too. That means you'll have to put together your picture collection, but it sounds like that's what you want anyway.

    Thanks for the post but I clearly stated I was looking for a solution OTHER then Spotlight.
