    It would be worth temporarily turning off your sync settings to see if continues to happen or not.

    If not, then it's most likely the "Theme" sync setting.

    Yep that fixed it thanks so much. I was looking in the wrong place! When you have the time would it be possible for you to help me with this problem, too? I just made a thread about it here Windows 10 64 bit consistently will NOT cold boot. - Windows 10 Forums

    Hello Slyphnier,

    Do you have secure sign-in enabled by chance?

    If you have enabled secure sign-in where users are required to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to unlock, then that would cause the slide show to not play on the lock screen for all users.

    Does anyone know how to make Win 10 display the lock screen picture on startup with secure sign-in enabled? I can see the picture if I use win-l but not on startup.

    This won't please businesses that expect to use their logo on startup and when the screen is locked.

    Hello Julian,

    The lock screen will still show a selected picture with secure sign-in enabled. It just won't show a slide show with it enabled.

    At startup, you see the sign-in screen instead.

    If you were talking about build 10586-36 then I would agree with you, that is exactly what happened. However with build 10586-63 I now get a plan coloured sign-on screen but the picture when the laptop is locked with Win-L.

    This is not an unusual situation, the original 10240 build did exactly the same after an update then reverted to working normally after another update shortly afterwards. So, is this a problem for older computers and if it is what is the solution? Someone needs to investigate and have Microsoft ensure that updates do not screw settings that owners have set up.

    Julian,

    It shows the picture I selected on my lock screen in build 11099. It should be the same in your build as well. Double check your lock screen background settings to make sure you are using a "Picture" and not a "Slide Show".

    At startup when no user is signed in, you will see the "default" lock screen instead of your selected lock screen. The default one is usually the brown cave image below.

    Yep, that's what my thoughts were as well, but was trying to get clarification if Julian meant sign-in screen instead of lock screen.

    No, that is not the problem! The problem is the lock screen is set to show a picture, the picture shows correctly with Win-L lock screen but the Sign-In screen shows plain colour

    These were just taken so this is what is happening at the present time. To make the picture appear on the Sign-In Screen, I have to disable Ctrl-Alt-Del, enabling it again after a reboot just gives the same problem.

    Julian,

    Your green screenshot is of the "default" system lock screen instead. It's not "your" user lock screen, or the sign-in screen that shows the user accounts.

    It appears something has changed it since it should be of the brown cave image I posted above by default.

    I haven't tested this below in Windows 10, but you might see if it may change the "default" lock screen image to what you like.

    OR

    Be sure to create a restore point first. This way if it causes an issue, you can just quickly do a system restore using the restore point to undo it.
