    Thanks Josey.

    I followed the tutorial with interesting results. Changing the registry setting did two things. It switched the "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" to Off. I rebooted just to see what would happen. The background on the sign-in screen was the same gray background I mentioned that now shows when I'm logging off.

    Putting the "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" back to On returned the display to the incorrect/undesired screenshot. So, something changed, but not to what we want.

    Then you have some kind of problem, maybe corrupted files, Try To open an elevated CMD Prompt and run SFC /Scannow. Then try the tutorial again.

    Isn't the lock screen same as login screen?
    I never lock mine since I am the only user.

    No not normally, I have my Lock screen turned off so it goes right to the Login which is the same as my lock screen was when I had it running.

    Not necessarily, sir. It's an option you can select, and it is what I want. My lock screen screenshot and my sign-in screen screenshot are displaying different pictures. I'd like them to display the same picture, which they did before the latest Windows 10 update.

    Hi Josey -

    I've run the scan, and it indicates no problems.

    You can disable the Lock screen then you will boot right to the Login. If you are the only user there is no need for a lock screen. Let me know..

    Hi Josey -

    I've tried your suggestions, and they do not address the issue. I do not want to change default or user lock screen screenshot. That is fine. I do not want to disable the logon (sign-in) screenshot either. That leaves me with the gray screen I mentioned earlier in the thread.

    What I want to do is get my sign-in screen screenshot to be the same as my lock screen screenshot. That's it. I have the "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" selector set to On. This issue started with the latest update to Windows 10 (now at 16299 on my machine.) This is happening on my Surface Pro 4, though I don't know how or if that's relevant. If you need other info to help solve the problem I'm actually having, please let me know. Thank you again!
