    How to Enable or Disable Sign-in Screen Background Image in Windows 10


    Windows 10 has a new sign in screen that is more modern and touch friendly. By default, you need to dismiss the lock screen and enter your credentials on the Sign-in screen to sign in to Windows 10 with your account.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the sign-in screen background image for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to enable or disable the sign-in screen background image.

    If you enable the sign-in screen background image, then the lock screen background image will show on the sign-in screen background by default. When a user selects a color, it will only change the accent color on their sign in screen.

    If you disable the sign-in screen background image, then a solid color will be used as the background on the sign-in screen. When a user selects a color, it will change the background color with a slightly lighter accent color on their sign-in screen. The Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen option on the Lock screen settings page will be removed.


    EXAMPLE: Sign in screen background image enabled and disabled

    Here's How:

    The .reg files below will add and change DWORD value in the registry key below.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System

    DisableLogonBackgroundImage DWORD

    0 or delete = enable
    1 = disable



    1 Do step 2 (enable) or step 3 (disable) below for what you would like to do.


    2 To Enable Sign in Screen Background Image for All Users

    This is the default setting.

    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    Enable_Sign_in_Background_Image.reg

    Download


    3 To Disable Sign in Screen Background Image for All Users

    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    Disable_Sign_in_Background_Image.reg

    Download


    4 Save the .reg file to your desktop.

    5 Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    6 When prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

    7 If you like, you can delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.

    8 Users will see the change the next time they sign out or sign in.


    That's it,
    Shawn

    Hello jimbob,

    Yes, there sure is. When you use the tutorial below to change your color, use the note box under step 5D to adjust the "Brightness" color mixer slider to the far left to make it black, and save.
