    Can't change lock screen image upon startup

    I can change the lock screen image from Settings > Lock Screen without any problems and when I lock the computer my intended lock screen image is the one I chose, but when I boot the computer up or sign out the lock screen image is always some default W10 image.

    I'm using W10 Home with the latest updates. I have the background on the lock screen settings page as "picture".

    I've read that there's actually two separate lock screens: a default/welcome lock screen and a user lock screen. I'm guessing the one on startup and after a sign out is the default/welcome lock screen, but I can't find how to change it.

    I think it's a bug in the Anniversary update that hasn't been fixed yet.

    I realize that I posted this thread ages ago but I managed to fix this myself at some point, go to C:\Users\(User)\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager\LocalState\Assets and delete everything in that folder.
