This is not the individuals Lock Screen
This is the lock screen when you have multiple users created on a single Windows 8 System and they are all logged off

The default is the Spire Background. I want to change this but can not find it's location

I tried renaming and deleting the image from C:\Windows\Web\Screen ,, this did not work
ie; I copied a wallpaper over and gave it the same name as this one,, it is img100.jpg


A registry key pointing to something embedded

I did a search in Registry for img100.jpg but came up empty.

That does not work and note..... force a specific default lock screen image

Note: This setting only applies to domain-joined machines, or unconditionally in Enterprise and Server SKUs.

Please also note,, this is not a LOCK Screen.
It is a No Users are Logged into the system when multiple accounts are created on a Win8 System.

Awesome,, thanks I was hunting for this everywhere... This works.

The Sign Out screen is stored in:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\S-1-5-18\ReadOnly\LockScreen_Z

You need to turn on the Show Files and Folders option from Folders Options in order to see it.

Here's how to change the sign out screen:


  1. go to folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows
    Right click on SystemData ->Properies->Security->Advanced->Change
  2. Enter your user name (You must be in Administrators group), then click on Check Names->OK
  3. Place a tick on "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects", click Apply ->OK, Yes->OK->OK->OK

Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\S-1-5-18\ReadOnly\LockScreen_Z

You will see 2 images of the Seattle Space needle in this folder, To view these 2 images.

  1. Right click on it->Properties->Securities->Edit->Add
  2. Enter your user name, Click on Check Names->OK->OK->OK

Replace these 2 images with whatever images you want, make sure they have the same names and resolution as shown
in LockScreen_Z.

IMPORTANT: After swapping the images, Right click on image->Properties->Securities->Edit
Make sure SYSTEM is in the user list with permission shown below:
(If SYSTEM is not in the list, you have to add it to the list using the 2 steps above)

  1. Read&Execute
  2. Read

Sign out, you should see the new Image.

Hey guys,

I tried the solution given, but I only see one image in the "LockScreen_Z" folder. I tried replacing that one with my image of choice, but when I logged out I got a blank blue background instead. I assume this is because I only replaced one of the two images.

Anyone know why the second image isn't visible to me? I have hidden files set to shown, and I gave myself security access to LockScreen_Z, so I don't know why I shouldn't be seeing it.
