    Background changer? Anyone found another way?


    Hi

    I posted something like this months ago, not sure what i wrote but i apologize if i have repeated my self and if have broken a rule for linking something i should not have. Recently i came across a background changer for my log in screen. It worked and i loved it the time and even after doing a system restore due to accidentally deleting half my program folders from my main SSD The image has remained on my log in screen, i tried to remedy this with same application but it seems like this program is dead. Now i am stuck with this background with no idea of how to change it, unless a i do a fresh reinstall of windows. Definitely not doing that I have linked this program below. Anyone found another way? I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Hello Kiregshammer,

    If you have at least build 14279 or later installed the sign-in screen uses the same background as what set for your lock screen.

    If you don't, you can wait for the anniversary release at the end of July to have this available.

    Too much of a CPU/GPU resource hog. I just disable any graphics on the login screen, since most photo slideshows tend to cause memory leaks and crashes.

    As a test, change you lock screen background again after turning on the setting above to show on your sign-in screen to see if it may toggle it to work and show on both lock and sign-in screens.

    Unfortunately that did not work think i might have changed something internally when i used that program.

    Depending on how long ago you used the program, you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you did to undo it.

    For your previous question that I missed.
