    Setting One Picture as a Login Background Image

    One of the posts here indicated how to get at the series of images that display in the Lock Screen. I liked one of them and changed the Lock Screen to use that exclusively. However I don't care for the Lock Screen so I disabled it in GPEdit. I have set the Login background to use the Lock Screen image. However it appears to continue to use the Spotlight option to display Login background images instead of the image I selected. Is there some way to fix this?

    Presumably you need to set the bottom option off, and the top one to Picture in the drop-down?

    I also tried forcing the Lock Screen to use a specific image via GPEdit;

    Changed "Computer Configuration" > "Administrative Templates" > "Control Panel" > "Personalization" >
    "Force a specific default lock screen and logon image"
    From: "Not configured"
    To: "Enabled"
    and set Image/Location to "My_Image.jpg" in the location it resided.
    That still did not work.
