    I also do not like that "fancy" stupid pictures.
    Here the Solution:
    Use Paint, make a picture fill it with the Background color you like, save it as JPEG.
    Next go to Settings>Personalization>Lock Screen Select "Picture" and click "Browse" and point to your previous saved Picture.
    That´s it.
    I tried and it works.
    Cheers
