    No Start Screen personalization option in PC settings


    I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 (UK version) from Windows 8 using DVD.
    But I got a weird thing happening that I can't find info anywhere online about.

    I want to choose a different color for a Start Screen but I can't as there is no option to pick a color in PC Settings - Lock Screen.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    No one?

    Maybe move thread to General Support?

    Hello Zavarzin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm sorry that your post was missed.

    See if using OPTION ONE or OPTION THREE in the tutorial below will work for you to change the color of your Start screen background.
