Windows 10: Unable to use same lock screen and sign in screen.

    Unable to use same lock screen and sign in screen.


    I am running windows 10 (If it helps, my computer started out with Win 7) with no previews or builds. I can't find any way to allow me to change the sign-in screen to the same as the lock screen. I know some people have posted pictures of what to switch, but that option isn't available for me.Click image for larger version.

    As you could see, there is no "lock=sign in" for using Spotlight option.
    How could I fix this?

    Hello abcde, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You would need to turn on the Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen setting in your screenshot to do so.

    I wish I could do that, but the thing that I turn on displays this image


    In fact, the slide option for "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" does not appear, the one I have is "Show Windows background on lock screen," which, unfortunately, is different.

    It looks like you need to update Windows 10 to the latest build via Windows Update.

    Will I need a new key for this process? Will Windows deactivate and force me to buy a new one?
