    What if I want to use the custom background, is it possible?

      It is not clear yet. Maybe MS will add some option with few recent updates.

    Can’t seem to get this to work on the final public release version of Win 10 Pro.
    Anyone else had success with disabling the background image?
    I have tried both sign out and restart and still see background image…

      Remove your password and you won’t have to log in.

    Finally, I’ve been waiting for Microsoft to do something about that background, but it seems they don’t care. I really appreciate the tutorials you post, Sergey.

    Now that the wallpaper can be disabled, the new question is: Is it possible to change the solid color? You could do this in Windows 8 and 8.1. Its was purple by default but you could change that using default accent color values in registry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent]
    “DefaultStartColor”=dword:ff1d1d1d <— Dark Gray
    "DefaultAccentColor"=dword:ff5e5e5e <— Dark Gray

    Does anyone know of a similar way to do this in Windows 10?

    I really want to choose my own picture for the Windows 10 Login screen (that is, the screen where you enter your password, not the Lock Screen). Thankfully I’ve been able to use WinAero Tweaker to disable the pathetic Microsoft-light-streaming-in-from-the-windows picture, but the solid colour is boring.

    Sergey, do you reckon that you will be able to add a tweak for this? Your others are fantastic.
