Since Windows 8, Microsoft has added a Lock Screen feature to Windows in addition to the Logon screen where you type the password. In Windows 10 also, the Lock Screen is an additional screen which is displayed with a fancy background and some useful information like clock and date. It appears before you can pick a user account to sign in. When you lock your computer, again you will see the Lock screen. By default, Windows 10 downloads new images for the Lock screen from the internet. The Lock screen does not bring any additional functionality and exists for entertainment purposes only. If you don't find it useful, you can disable it. In this article, we will see how to disable the Lock Screen in Windows 10.
As you might have observed, Windows 8.1 has two Lock Screens. One of them is your personalized lock screen, which you see when you lock your PC or tablet. The second one is the default Lock Screen. Every time you sign out, you see the default image with color stripes and the blue login screen behind it.
While you are able to customize your personal Lock Screen via PC Settings, Windows 8.1 provides no way to change the background image and color of the default Lock Screen.
I would like to share with you a simple way of changing the appearance of the default Lock screen.
