This tutorial explains how to change Logon screen background in Windows 10.
With Windows 10 came a lot of welcome new features, one of them being a nice looking background image in the logon screen. The image looks great and everything, but in a matter of a few days, you will get used to the background image and it’ll get pretty monotonous to look at every single time that you log in to your machine. Microsoft does not offer a way to change the background image directly through its operating system. Now we need to be clear on one thing – this is the logon screen background that I’m talking about, and not the lock screen background – the lock screen background image can be changed easily via the Personalization settings, in a similar manner to Windows 8/8.1.
In today’s dojo, I talk about a tool which can allow you to successfully hack your Windows 10 registry files to change the logon screen’s background image. Enough of the long talk now, let’s get started!
- A fully functional Windows 10 machine.

- Backup of your data in case anything goes haywire.
