    I'm trying to change my login screen to have the same background image as the lock screen (Pic related is an example of what I want) pic.png

    However I am only able to change it to a default color instead of an image. Do I need to perhaps register something within the registry in order to change it, or do I need to install third party software?

    Thanks for the help.

    Did you even read the post?

    As far as I know It's not possible to change the background of logon screen in Windows 8.1 to anything other than one of predefined colors. Wallpaper is possible only in Windows 7 and Windows 10 (1607 and later).
