    I don't understand why either. I think it may have been an oversight since it could have easily been an option added to the same UI for changing the lock screen of an administrator.

    Is it possible to have NO background Image that Windows has to render, but instead just a Color background (maybe with color choice) (I know I can make a wallpaper like that but I am asking NO background image - the way we could choose in Windows main Wallpaper)?

    Hello xbliss,

    It appears you'll have to use a solid color image as the background as a workaround for no background.

    Thank you, but that's the same as below to disable/remove the lock screen instead of having a lock screen with no background image.
