Hello.
How can I add a right click menu to an image file in order to be able to set it as a Lock Screen background.

P.s. Reg. file I guess?

Thanks

Hi there Haikgh,

no, it is not possible to add a feature to the rightclick menu to set a picture directly as lock screen background.

There is however a workaround! You can use the rightclick menu to set a picture as your dekstop background. And using a program like decor8 (Decor8 - Personalize the Windows® 8 Start screen with Decor8™!), you can change a setting so that the lockscreen is always the same as your desktop background.

Goodluck with it!

Greetz,

Rover

Appreciate your response very much Der Snoober.

Thanks for the tip, too. I wouldn't wanna have both pictures the same, though :)

Thanks

Een mooie dag verder.

Thank you man. I'll try it out.
I am still hoping to get some kind of .reg file which would add a line in a right click menu of the image file to set a the picture to lockscreen directly :)

Not sure if anyone made that yet. But should be possible somehow I just don't know how.

Have a look at the Bing App: it can add the Bing background image to the Lock Screen.
Maybe Internet Explorer can do that as well... the Metro one? Don't know.
