    Thank you all. As I mentioned, this started with the latest update. I guess I'm relieved in some way that it seems to be a bug as I've tried most everything I can think of as well, including a re-install.

    Not sure what I did would qualify as a "repair" install though. I just put the CD in and ran the install program, telling it to hang onto my files and data. Is there more to it than that?

    Here are some folks that are having similar issues. I followed the first thread and made changes to my test system. Sure enough I was able to recreate.

    To this date my lock screen is a pretty picture that changes but my sign in screen is a solid colour and no matter what I pick, it will not change and I can't change colour. I've changed it to picture. Did the Hold shift key down and shutdown, changed it again and restarted. Nothing. It is a solid colour screen.

    This may not match your issue but this an issue and it seems for a number of members once you mess with it, it is stuck.

    I suggested reporting on Feedback Hub which is what I did.Lock Screen to Logon Credentials not working as desired

    Thanks, Ken, and sorry about your test system. <g>

    Do you (or anyone) know where the stock photos are stored? Hitting the Browse button takes me to my standard Pictures folder. I know the sign-in and lock screen screenshots are .png files, but I have no clue what each individual file is named nor where they are stored. That might be helpful.

    Ken (and rmanasa). Now, when you already messed with your test system, can you try this?
    Supposed to be free util to change login screen..

    Disclaimer from that post:
    For advanced users, as we mentioned the tool automatically modifies the "Windows.UI.Logon.pri" present in "C:\Windows\SystemResources\Windows.UI.Logon" folder. Before modifying the PRI file, it first creates a backup of the file with the name "Windows.UI.Logon.bak". So if something goes wrong, you can safely delete the new PRI file and then rename the BAK file to "Windows.UI.Logon.pri" again to restore default login screen.

    Yes, that is exactly what a repair install is - running setup.exe from within Windows, selecting to keep files and apps.

    Thanks Simrick for confirming what a repair installation is.

    And that link and program look promising AndreTen. It does assume though that you know what picture you want to use for the sign-in screen and where it is. As I said in the last post, I have no idea where the stock pictures are located or what they are called. Are they wrapped up in the .pri file? Is there a listing somewhere of what each picture is called?

    and if you could change it, perhaps it'll start to behave. If not, you could still repair install.
