    how to remove time and date on lock screen in windows 8.1


    Hi,

    apologies if this has been covered before somewhere else.
    I am trying to remove the time and date from the lock screen. having searched I have seen several customisation options but the only one that actually covered this specifically was to make a change in regedit:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

    this brought about issues relating to administrator accounts which seem to be a common problem with windows 8.1.
    nearly all of the solutions were not available to me but I finally found I could make the change in regedit by changing ownership of the file and changing the format of the time to a space. unfortunately the date is still showing.
    how can I remove the date?

    further, just to clarify, does the original account I signed in with have full administrator privileges? are they disabled and need to be enabled?
    ive seen the tutorial on the built in elevated administrator account, this didn't work on its own either. do some files require a change of ownership to be altered regardless of which account you are signed in with including the administrator account?

    any help appreciated

    thanks

    Brad

    You know it wouldn't be so bad if we were able to change the fugly font MS used on the lock screen and were able to resize them.
