    How do I change login screen background?


    Dear All,

    Is it possible to change the background image of the user login screen? I mean the one with a solid color background that displays user's account picture. I intend to replace the solid color background with an image of my choice (as it is possible in the lock screen).
    Please suggest.

    Thanks,
    Troy.

    Nope, it can't. You can't change the color of your lock screen. BTW you can change the start screen color.
