Hello,
I added a wallpaper to my pictures folder, and I then used that as my logon screen wallpaper.
However everytime I turn the computer off, and on the default rainbow wallpaper keeps coming on. If I restart or log off, my wallpaper shows. How can this be? Can anyone please help me?

It was the logon lock screen that I changed, when I logoff, it works and it shows, when I restart it shows. But when I shut down and power back on it shows the rainbow wallpaper, and as soon as I logoff it shows the one I set, which is weird cause i can shut down again, and it will show the rainbow one.
I have it saved in my pictures folder, not in my onedrive or any cloud.

I think it's a glitch because mine does that too.. But I thought it was a fluke with the custom themes I'm running :p

Is there a way to maybe delete the rainbow logon lock screen wallpaper or maybe take my wallpaper and rename it to the one that the rainbow one is called and then just replace it? where could i find it in explorer?
