    Hi,

    I would like to have a solid black background for the shutting down and Ctrl-Alt-Del screens.

    Any ideas, thanks for the great work.......

    There is not this folder in Windows 10 : C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds
    Maybe only in Windows 7.

    So choose dark gray or change desktop background to black.

    the desktop wallpaper will not change the color of the Ctrl-Alt-Del screen or Shutting down screen. It defaults with the accent color.

    I'm trying to find the registry key that points to the ctrl-alt-del and shutting down screens to the accent colour so I can remove it and set a custom colour. What a pain just to get a black background.
