    Login Screen Background Not same as desktop Background


    Hi,

    I have set the option "Show Windows Background on the sign in screen" in personalization -> Lock screen to true and I changed my wallpaper. The sign in screen keeps the default blue sign in background.

    This occurs on my PC and my laptop. Both are running Windows 10 1511
    Laptop is Enterprise PC is PRo

    Any ideas? Rebooting hasn't worked on both

    Regards
    Danny

    That's what this option is currently intended to do: when OFF, it shows solid color on login screen, when ON it shows the standard blue windows logo background on login screen. It is probably customizable, but only through a "hack" of some sort.

    The ability to keep the lock screen background on login screen is coming up in the next major update. But it is not in the current official build.

    There's no option to show your wallpaper on login screen and none is planned. You can, of course, use the same picture as your wallpaper as login screen background and wait till the release.
