    Screen Flash After Login in 8.1


    When my computer boots up, it goes to the login screen, but after entering the details, the screen flashes for a second before loading the desktop. Does anybody know why this happens?

    I have Intel4000 graphics and I'm thinking it has to do with the graphic drivers...

    +1, happens to me as well, annoying as hell.

    I see a brief flash of a "default" Welcome screen background as well, then when I log in, I get a black flicker before it shows the start screen or desktop (doesn't matter which FYI)

    To respond to your hypothesis @BuggyWindows81, I don't know if it has anything to do with the Intel4000 graphics, since I'm running a Sandy Bridge processor (Intel3000) with a discrete GPU and I get the flash when I load Windows normally (GPU) as well as when I load it up in SafeMode (Intel 3000).

So I disabled the lock screen as it's just another unnecessary click to login, but what I want to be able to do is customise the background image of the login/ctrl+alt+del screen. I know you can change the "accent" colour but I don't want to use a solid colour. How do I go about this?
