    Change background color of CTRL+ALT+DEL-screen


    Hey

    For the past two hours I've been looking into how I can change the blue background color when I press CTRL+ALT+DEL on my Windows 10 build 16299.371
    For clarification, I mean this screen here:

    That's where I looked first, but no matter what color I pick (and I'd really love black), it won't change the blue color of that CTRL+ALT+DEL screen.

    Try setting your background to 'Center', then add the custom color that matches your accent color in 'Colors'...

    Unfortunately, all that does, is center my background image instead of stretching it:

    so, the blue background color of CTRL+ALT+DEL didn't change.

    Try toggling these on, if they are not, or maybe off then close settings and back on:

    My CTRL ALT DEL screen is the accent color for me. The dark gray I have set shows, not blue.

    I hadn't seen that option yet, thank you for that. Unfortunately, it didn't get the result: the CTRL ALT DEL screen is still blue.
    I checked both options and I chose a grey-ish color from the colors in the top of the window.

    For some reason, your DWM color is not syncing with your accent color,

    try Windows 10 Color Control...

    (your Glass8 application may have something to do with it!)

    Thanks Edwin, I was at a loss here. I never really press CTRL ALT DEL and had to do it so I could check mine for this thread lol.

    Hey

    Windows 10 Color Control, another tool I've never heard of. I'm learning here. :)
    So, I downloaded it, used it, changed the colors to black, clicked Apply... and unfortunately, the CTRL ALT DEL screen didn't change.
