Windows 10: Sign In Screen Wallpaper Location? Solved

    Sign In Screen Wallpaper Location?


    Not really a technical help request per say, but I was curious if there happened to be a location where the image that shows up on the screen where you enter your password is. Not talking about the lock screen. In Windows 7 it's located under "C:\Windows\System32\oobe", but that's not the case in Windows 10. Is there a place where this image exists? If not, it might be in one of the various MUI files...

    Hello MrMii,

    The Here wallpaper is in the C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows folder.

    If you wanted to change your sign-in screen background, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.

    It looks like regular Hero, or is it supposed to be? Does the sign in screen change how Hero looks or something? This is the only one I found in Web\Wallpaper. Apologies.

    It's the same one. It just looks darker with the user picture overlaid on it. There are also different sizes in the folder below.

    C:\Windows\Web\4K\Wallpaper\Windows
