How to change the background image when...

Recommended Posts

How do change the background image when I lock my computer? I have fast user switching turned off so I'm not talking about the user switching screen. Right now its that ugly default windows green field image all tiled. So any help is appreciated. Thanks.

first off do you have a picture you want as your back ground?if you don't windows has a few you can choose from. if you do right click on a empty space on your desktop, a menu will come up, select properties,click the desktop tab, to display a picture on your desktop click the picture you want to use from the list click apply or ok tab and windows will use what you pick as the background. note: you can select browse tab, and go to my pictures and select any picture you have saved there as your background if you want. there are different ways to display you picture as well under position pull down there is stretch to cover the entire desktop, tile repeats the picture until it fills the desktop.and center displays the pic. in the center of you desktop. ;)

I know how to set a image as my background. My question is about how to set the background image that shows up when I lock my computer?

 

Because when I lock my computer it doesn't use the desktop background.

If your are saying that the logon screen shows up because you have locked the computer when it is locked. no I do not think you can change that display. you may try a search or ask microsoft about it. if you can change that display. I do not know about it. :)

Why not just use the screen saver with PW enabled? does the same thing, and I believe when you ctrl-alt-delete to lock the computer, that shows up?

 

EDIT:

Nope, I was wrong. however, the background is still the desktop picture. Also, with the screen saver set, it will go that in the time specified...
