    Welcome Screen (Lock Screen Pic) not showing on Restart


    I'm having a weird issue.

    Every time I Restart my Laptop, the Lock Screen does not show the Welcome Screen and skips directly to the User Account login screen. Actually, it shows a darkish blue screen for a couple of seconds and then jumps to the user account login.

    When I use the logout function or the shutdown (and I power it back on) everything works normally.

    I have ran SFC / Scannow in windows (8.1 by the way).

    Any suggestion ?

    I may have misunderstood what you are asking but does this tutorial help?

    In Windows 8 and 8.1 there are two "Lock" screens.

    • The user lock screen is the one that displays when a user locks the PC while still signed in to Windows, and when the user is selected on the sign in screen, times out, and returns to the lock screen. Each user is able to change their lock screen background image to an image of their choice.
    • The default Lock screen image is the one that displays when there are no users currently signed in to Windows or selected on the sign in screen.

    Well, I ran the DISM command while typing my post and some updates applied and everything is back to normal.
    Thanks and sorry for the post.

How do I change the login screen image? (NOT lock screen)
So I disabled the lock screen as it's just another unnecessary click to login, but what I want to be able to do is customise the background image of the login/ctrl+alt+del screen. I know you can change the "accent" colour but I don't want to use a solid colour. How do I go about this?
