    Login screen


    Hi

    I think I have a bit of a problem that I cant sort out.

    Ive been into the personalisation settings and I cannot change my login screen from being a plain solid colour, its the colour that I choose on settings/personalisation/colour

    I have tried changing the setting on settings/personalisation/lock screen to picture and to windows spotlight but still there is no change.

    Perhaps Im a bit confused but is the lock screen setable from anywwhere?
    I would be satisfied with a static picture on the screen berfore I get to the login screen but this is also a blank solid colour, I would really like this screen to change as windows spotlight does or as the windows desktop background changes display of picture files in a folder.

    Interestingly when I press the windows key anf L to lock - an image from windows spotlight displays.

    Paste the following into Notepad, save it as a .reg file then run it, restart Explorer and you will have dark theme:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize]
    "AppsUseLightTheme"=dword:00000000

    I have marked this unsolved because the problem has returned.
    When i started my computer today the screen that shows after boot and before the login screen is a picture i once used not a windows spotlight picture as is set in settings/personalisation/lock screen which does say *windows spotlight*.

    I want windows spotlight to appear on that screen and i want the login screen to be a solid colour.

    Please help me sort this out, it seems that windows spotlight or the personalisation settings are not working properly.
