I purchased a new laptop, and was using it with only one account. I had a custom lock screen. However, on making another account, the lock screen became a default swirling image. I do not know how to change that. I attempted the following solution:

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->EditMake 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.


However, it did not work for me. In the LockScreen_Z folder, there was a different image. I was also unable to delete that, as it said I did not have the permission. When I purchased the laptop, I had it set up in the store itself. They misspelled my name. I then synced my account to my Microsoft account, so it was resolved. Apparently, when changing the permissions, my local account was referenced. How can I solve this?
