Hi

as the title says, im too stupid to find a specific windows setting:

after my pc booted up I get to a screen that shows the seattle tower, mountains in the background etc. Its nice but Id like to change that picture. How can I do that?

Also, is there a way to change the background at the screen where I can type my password? Its just a solid color, Id like to replace that with a picture.

I have only been able to find the setting to change my lockscreen, but thats not what I mean.

Thanks!

thanks but I know how to change the lockscreen. the 2 screens mentioned above are something different:

1. the screen you see first when you resume or boot your computer
2. the screen where you see your "avatar" picture and enter the password

No, that's what you asked for (the first question) and for your second question, nope.

If you don;t want to click the link above (in Tyler R's post) then...[list]
[*]go to start screen
[*]click your avatar in the corner
[*]select 'change picture'
[*]You should now have all the settings for said screens in front of you.
[/list]

sorry I dont get it. as a definition I differentiate between 3 screens:

1. the first you see when you boot up --> name?

2. the lockscreen (e.g. winkey + l) --> lockscreen, easy to configure, as explained by yourself

3. the background image/color of my avatar where I can enter my password --> name?


dont you get an image shown when you boot up before you log in? the lock screen has notifications on it, the first one after booting that I see has nothing on it, just the Seattle picture. After I hit a key I then get to the avatar/login screen. thats just not the same as the lockscreen.

or do i have a bloody weird windows 8 version?

Are you talking about the boot image? The 4 squares before you see the lockscreen? If so, I'm not too sure if its changeable without editing system files.

There is a Start Screen and a Lock Screen. I'm not sure what the confusion is about. Where you see an avatar and enter your password, it's a blank background... The only visual changes would be from the color theme you choose. I may be wrong, but that's how I understand your issue.

While this does not directly answer your question but if you use picture password, you don't have to use the screen with you avatar and a blank background.

If you use a PIN, one of my favorite new features, you won't have to see the blank avatar screen long enough to be bothered by the fact that you can't change it. :D
