    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    Greetings -

    Ever since the latest update to Windows 10 (10.0,16299) my Login screen screenshot and Lock screen screenshot are different. Personalize>Lock Screen shows the desired screenshot as it always has. "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" is set to On as it's always been. Nothing has changed there. Not sure if this is related, but the background screen color has changed from blue to gray when I Restart or Shutdown.

    I've looked for a Pictures folder that might contain the stock screenshots without success. I've even reinstalled Windows 10 to try to fix this. I hate to admit it, but I'm stumped. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!

    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen

    Thanks again for the quick reply, Josey. I'll try and be more specific in my problem.

    The Lock screen screenshot is correct. I want the sign-in screen to use the same screenshot. I have "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" set to On. For whatever reason, the sign-in screen is showing a different background picture.

    Hi Josey -

    Yes, that switch is set to On. Still no joy.

    Do you have the box checked for automatically pick an accent color for my background?
    I have mine set that way, background theme changes each day with a different accent color.

    Thanks for the reply. Mr. Hudson. While I do have that selected, it only affects my desktop color, which is not the issue here. My problem is syncing up the lock screen screenshot and the sign-in screen screenshot.
