    Hi, whether the topic is marked solved or not is up to the originator. I have no special rights being just a forum user like you.

    This may help with the anniversary edition and note the need to turn "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen") in Settings, Personalisation, Lock Screen to Off.

    For reference, here's how it worked:

    I'm looking for that register tweak, but I can't find it in my register. I've added it before, any advice?

    Hello Dropbox, :)

    If you were wanting to disable the lock screen, then you could use OPTION THREE below to do so, but it still won't affect the lock screen at startup.

    Hey Brink,

    The lockscreen is disabled so I can enter direct my password. But I want to change the background there again. :)

    P.S. Cute avatar!

    Thank you. :)

    In that case, you could use OPTION ONE below to show the lock screen background on the sign-in screen.

    Afterwards, change the lock screen background picture to what you like to also have it on the sign-in screen.

    No problem, but it keeps somehow disabled (not allowed to change). I've no idea what I must do to remove that.

    What build of Windows 10 do you have installed?

    Check using option 1 or 2 below to see if you may have disabled the lock screen with this policy.

    I'll have an look at the second link and edit my post when i got more info.

    EDIT: OK, I can change it and created a new folder because I want use a dia now, but when I save it, it keeps giving another background. How can I make it that the dia works and how can I check that?

    You'll only be able to use these file types for a background picture.
