Synopsis

How to Change Background Color of Default Sign-in Screen in Windows 8 and 8.1


information   Information
In Windows 8, there are two sign-in screens, and each has their own background color.

The first is the user's sign-in screen that only shows that user to enter their password.

The second is the default sign-in screen that shows all user accounts like in the example screenshot below.


This tutorial will show you how to change the background color of the "default" sign-in screen that displays all user accounts in Windows 8, Windows RT, Window 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

Hello Techwavy,

It should work on a Windows 8 tablet just as well, but just more fun trying to edit the registry.

If you are unable to edit the registry easily on the tablet, then please just let me know what value you want for the color. I'll be happy to whip up a .reg file that you can download and use to make the changes automatically for you. :)

Thanks & a Question

Thank-you... All Users = Mustard (21) , one user = light green, the other user = light Blue. It works!
But I want more....
Can I put a wallpaper Photo on the background?
Note: I've used the forum advice to permanently get rid of the space needle [Lands.. & Port..] &
now would like to add a photo to the "All Users" Screen Wallpaper.

Just asking, I really liked the advice.

Thanks Again

Yes, I've set each users background color (mustard for all, lt blue for one, lt green for the other).
I bought one of those 3rd party software packages that is supposed to let you put a photo on a user's
Start Screen [we'll see...] , but I realized that even if this works, and the photo also appears on that
user's login screen, it won't solve the problem [a made up one I admit] of background wallpaper on the
"All Users" screen. Bah Humbug!

A bit long, but thanks very much for the Tutorial and your quick reply.

Oh my. Option Two in the tutorial below is a free method on how to change the "Start" screen background image to anything you like. It's not the same as the sign in screen though. :(

Is it possible this is broken in Windows 8.1? I tried it but nothing changed, it's still stuck on purple even though I put decimal value 17.

Tutorial has been updated to be able to change the background color of the default sign-in screen in both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 now. :)

In Windows 8.1 Update 1, to permanently change the background color of the screen that displays all users, should I apply the second method. Right?

Thanks
