    Opening Screen


    I am running win 8.1 on HP laptop. When I first turn on the unit, the first to appear on the screen is a sports team logo that I put there a while back. However, to be able to continue to the sign-in page, I have to either move the mouse or click enter to get there. Once I enter my password, it takes me to the Start menu. I want to eliminate the first screen and go directly to sign in and then to desktop. Can you help?

    Hello metromiami, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The tutorial below can help show you how to disable the lock screen so that you will immediately see the sign in screen instead.
    Next, you can use the tutorial below to set to go to your desktop instead of Start screen when you sign in or close modern apps.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
