    Lock Screen Problem


    My problem is that my lock screen picture is not showing/displaying(default lock screen is showing) at all after I on my laptop. But if I just restart it, the picture is showing. How to fix this? Thanks! =)

    OK, I am back with you on this:
    There's is a difference between the Lock screen and Sign in screen. By default, Windows use the same image for both Lock screen & Sign in screen.
    This is an old post when I answered this question, just go thru it and decide if you want to replace the Sign in screen: Sign out screen different from lock screen?
