    Multiple User Lockscreen Background Colour


    Hello all,

    I am a new Windows 8 user and was having trouble changing background colour when the screen is on lock mode with multiple users. The current colour is purple and I can't find a setting to change it.

    Would be great if someone can help.

    Thank you.

    Hello Aja, and welcome to Eight Forums.
    If you like, you could use the tutorial below to force a default solid color of your choice for the sign in screen for all users.

    Hope this helps,

    Thank you, Shawn.

    I actually found this link of yours Sign in Screen - Change Background Color in Windows 8, and it was easier for me to change the purple bg.

    You're welcome.

    That'll work fine in Windows 8, but just be warned that it will not work in Windows 8.1. When you upgrade to 8.1 on October 18th, you'll still be able to use the method I posted to do so if you like.
