Hey all,

I can't seem to change my lock screen image, in the settings I have picked an image (or folder, i tried both) and all I get to see is my default color, no image.

I have Windows 8.1.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hello Grandel, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Just to make sure, you are talking about the "Lock" screen in the link below....
and not the "Sign-in" screen below? The sign-in screen only has the option for a solid color.

Hope this helps for now, :)

Lock Screen Settings

Thanks a lot Brink, but unfortunately my problem still persists. I am not even able to see the default images on my lock screen (while I am logged in). I still only get to see a default color even though i specified to show an image. I attached a screenshot of my Lock Screen settings, perhaps you can spot something I have done wrong?

I don't see anything wrong with them, and not sure why you don't see that lock screen background when you press :winkey: + L while signed in.

Has it always not shown, or just recently started with this issue?

You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may help if there's a corrupted or modified system file at fault.

If this did start recently and the SFC scan didn't help, then you could try a system restore using a restore point dated before this issue started.

Lock Screen Settings

It has always been a solid color when I press WIN + L.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I created another user account and deleted the original one?

That shouldn't matter since the lock screen background is a per user setting and not global.
