    Hello Xav, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    It depends on which lock screen background you want to change. I suspect that you are wanting to change the default lock screen that shows when no users are signed in though. The tutorials below can help show you how to change both.

    (your lock screen)

    Hope this helps,
