    Fist thing you see.


    Morning every one.
    We are talking about Windows 8 touch screen.
    When I first start the computer a picture/photo appears with the time of the day, the day of the week and the month. I then have to slide this out of the way to be able to log in with my password.
    Thats fine I have no problem with that.
    The question is, how do I change the picture and does it have a name. Its not the start page, its not the desk top.
    Can some one help me on this one please. arram.

    It is called the Lock Screen. You can change it by going to Setting on the Start page -- Touch Windows key + C, then click Settings.

    In the lower right corner, click Change PC Settings.

    Then click Lock Screen.
