Go to Advanced, press Revert and then go to Image again to select the image you want.
How do you ask such weird questions?
Its on the first page in the first post..
Thanks, I will try this and let you know how it works!
Hello, this application does not work on my samsung laptop.
Windows 10 32 bits version. Every time I reboot I get the same blue inlog screen.
It skips the lockscreen like I want but it does not use the pictures I select for the login screen.
I did a sfc /scannow check and some windows files were repaired because I also did use the Enable Logon Background Image on Windows 10 reg edit before I used the Windows 10 login changerer
So to go back to normal situation I did use the sfc /scannow option and after the reboot I tried the windows 10 login changer again but the same result after reboot...no new image in the inlog screen...again the bleu inlog image.
Can you give me advise what to do...i always like to change the settings to give windows a more personal look
Don't use sfc /scannow (unless there's a reason of course) because it will always remove the image you select with Windows 10 Login Changer.
Do this: open Login Changer, select your image, go to Advanced, press Revert, then go back to Image and select your image one more time. This should work.
Thanks a lot!
Thanks. This is great!
Any chance of some more switches to support unattended runs?
A few that I'd definitely use:
- a /Q switch (or /QI to suppress the popup that comes up when running the /I switch on a machine for the first time
- a /QL to disable the lock screen (preferably quietly, maybe a /QDL?)
- an /AD for "Apply to desktop"
Seems like the /QDL and /AD would need to be run before the /QI ? At least that's how it appears to work in the GUI.
I suppose I could use some registry or group policy hacks to do some of the things requested above, but more switches would make the program a one stop shop for me! But it's already super awesome, so THANKS!
Thanks for putting it together and maintaining it and replying to posts!!!
Hey Alphawaves, been trying to reach you through pm but your inbox is full. Can you clean it so I can send you a message? I hate asking here in your thread but I have no other choice in order to get a hold of you. Hope no mods get mad.
Is there a way to revert everything and reset it?
the link is showing error please provide the link
On the first post both are working here.
Thanks a lot !!
download link dont seem to work... please provide a working link!
Just checked drop box link provided in first post. It is working fine.
Doesn't really work, it changes the background not the log in image.
That's exactly what it's supposed to do. Use Windows to change the login image...
OUCH Just did the win 10 upgrade on a win 7 machine with Lots of stuff installed. Downloaded and used the program to change my login screen and now the screen is black once the boot is complete. Tried typing blind to login but nothing changes. Really don't want to do a clean install and lose everything (years of work getting programs installed the way I want them). Lack of restore from boot is the pits.
look for "Windows.UI.Logon.pri.BACKUP" file and replace it under windows sub directory in safe admin mode as "Windows.UI.Logon.pri"; then reboot. Things should be normal.
Otherwise run sfc scan in repair mode under admin login.
I had begun here: howtogeek-dot-com/223875/how-to-change-the-login-screen-background-on-windows-10/
I had no trouble selecting an image and then downloading the .pri file and getting it in place, but then I got nothing more than a blank, light-blue screen and a mouse pointer at bootup. I had made a restore point just prior to doing any of that, however, and now the interesting thing here is that the restore-point restoration worked even better than I had hoped by leaving my new image displayed on the lock screen! So, maybe that is a work0around for anyone having trouble:
1. Make a restore point;
2. Change your image;
3. Replace the system's .pri file;
4. Do a reboot and remain relaxed;
5. Do a restoration and enjoy your new image.
