How to Change Your Lock Screen Background Image in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
Synopsis
This tutorial will show you how to change the lock screen background image for your user account to be any image you would like when you lock the PC while signed in to Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
How to Change Your Lock Screen Background Image in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1


information   Information
In Windows 8 and 8.1 there are two "Lock" screens.

  • The user lock screen is the one that displays when a user locks the PC while still signed in to Windows, and when the user is selected on the sign in screen, times out, and returns to the lock screen. Each user is able to change their lock screen background image to an image of their choice.
  • The default Lock screen image is the one that displays when there are no users currently signed in to Windows or selected on the sign in screen.

This tutorial will show you how to change the lock screen background image for your user account to be any image you would like when you lock the PC while signed in to Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

If you are using a Microsoft account and have the Personalize setting turned on to sync, then the lock screen background you currently have set will also be displayed on any PC that you sign in to with the same Microsoft account.

Note   Note
The default background images used for the lock screen are located in the Screen folder below. If you delete any of the default image in the Screen folder below, you will no longer see recent background images under the current lock screen image.

C:\Windows\Web\Screen

Tip   Tip
When you use choose to use a custom image for your lock screen instead of one of the default images, Windows will save this image in the hidden system LockScreen_(letter) folder location below to open it from. This way if you should lose your original image, you could get a copy of it from here.

Code:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\[B]SystemData[/B]\[COLOR=#ff0000][B]S-1-5-21...[/B][/COLOR]\ReadOnly\[B]LockScreen_[COLOR=#ff0000](letter)[/COLOR][/B]
Here's how to be able to open it and view the image if needed:
NOTE: You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do this.

1. You will need to take ownership (option four at link) of the hidden SystemData folder with "Administrators" or your user account, and check the Replace owner of subcontainers and objects box.

2. Open the SystemData folder, and open the S-1-5-21-.....(long number) folder for the user account that set this custom lock screen image. Each user account on the PC that uses a custom lock screen image will have it's own S-1-5-21-.....(long number) folder, so you may need to go in each one to find yours.

3. Open the ReadOnly folder, then open and look in each LockScreen_(letter) folder for the custom image. Each time you choose a custom image, a new LockScreen_(letter) folder is created in alphabetical order for each image.

You can also add your best 6 images.

* Go to C:\Windows\Web\Screen
* Copy your image 1920x1200 in this folder
* Delete or move a image (for exemple img104.jpg)
* Rename your screen with the name from the deleted image (for exemple img104.jpg)

Another Way is to just double-click on the image you want to set as background in Lock Screen and then right click-> set as lock screen.

What I don't understand is, with this new GUI, why when I click on "Network Path" to choose an image it just gives me an edit box in which to type in my UNC address. Seriously?? No network neighborhood browser? Did I miss it?

Hello mbrath,

Click on Computer instead of Network, then you should be able to just select a mapped drive, network location, or a computer on the homegroup to browse through for an image.

Network is for when you want to manually enter the network folder location instead.

Hope this helps, :)
Shawn

Thanks Shawn. Will that work if it's not a mapped drive? Will that view show me the Network from which I can choose the computer, etc?

You're welcome.

If the network location shows in your Computer window, then it will show here as well. Otherwise it will need to be mapped first.

Hello jjnilton, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Yes. You could delete the LockScreen_(letter) folder for each image you do not want to show in the recently used Lock screen images in the location in the yellow Tip box at the top of the tutorial on the first page.

Hope this helps, :)

For over a year now I've been playing a lot with lock screen image. I'm finally beginning to understand that I didn't have a problem with changing the lock screen image at all. It used the image I chose whenever my account got locked.

I don't know the correct terminology but it is not Lock Screen.

The image I want to change is on the screen we get when we first start our computer. The one with the space needle and we have to click on in order to view the login screen.
I really didn't mind the space needle that much but that hideous broken down red and brown roulette wheel that came with 8.1 update has got to go.

Is there a way to change that screen???

Hello Ron,

In Windows 8 there are two Lock screens. One is the current user Lock screen that displays when they are signed in. This is the one set by the method in this tutorial on the first page.

The other is the default Lock screen when there are no users currently signed in. So far, the only method I know to change this is in the tutorial below, but it's only for Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise or domain joined PCs. :(

Thanks Brink. I've been working it for a few hours and no luck.
Its only 8.1 64-bit not Pro or Enterprise.
I don't even have gpedit.msc according to this pc.

THANK YOU BRINK that did the trick. I don't understand why MS would force us to accept that default lock screen.
That hideous image could be used wisely though. As a desktop background for Administrator accounts. Which would force people to stay on Standard User accounts except when absolutely necessary.
I broke all my family & friends of using the Administrator account with an ugly homemade desktop background.
THANK YOU AGAIN
