10 thoughts on “Disable logon screen background image in Windows 10 Anniversary Update

  1. BillWoo

    I upgraded (from 8.1) to Win 10 Pro Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393 after the Anniversary release date, so I assume I have the “Anniversary Edition.”

    The “turn-off” option does not appear in this version as shown in your screenshot here.

    thanks, Bill

      This is just impossible.
      If you are running 14393, it should be there.

        I can confirm that I’m on .14393 and this option is also not visible to me.

      If you can tolerate the same image for the sign in screen and the lock screen, just enable the mentioned option.
      Then set the desired image as your lock screen background.

        Ye, but kinda like the random from Spotlight, too bad they still haven’t figure a way to translate that to the sign in. But meh :)

        Thanks

    Do you know how to remove the photo that comes up “before” the lock screen that you have to click through to get to the lock screen?

    Even when you turn off the lock screen it still loads that annoying picture. And you no longer can use the space bar to go to your desktop. I don’t need the owner login screen and wish I could get rid of it also. I must say the new Windows 10 anniversary that was forced on us is a step backwards!
