Disable Logon Screen Background Image in Windows 10
Windows 10 brought many changes, and one of these changes is the login screen. If you remember, Windows 8 and 8.1 used solid color background for login screen, and some users are quite used to it. If you’re one of those users, we will show you how to disable logon screen background image in Windows 10.
If you’re used to solid color on your login screen like in Windows 8, you can easily go back to it, and here’s how to do it.
Solution 1 – Download registry file to disable logon background image
This is pretty straightforward solution. Download this zip archive and extract it. Then just double click the Disable Logon Background Image on Windows 10.reg to add it to your registry and that’s it. There is also a .reg file available if you want to revert the changes.
Solution 2 – Change registry files yourself
This is a bit more trickier solution, but if you don’t want to download any files, you’ll have to follow these steps. Don’t worry, it’s nothing too hard, but be careful because messing with Registry files can create some problems, so as long as you follow the instructions carefully you’ll be fine.
- Open Registry editor by typing regedit in the Search field, or by pressing Windows key + R and typing regedit.
- Use the folder tree on the left to navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System.
- On the right side of the Registry editor click the right mouse button, select New, then 32-bit DWORD value and set its name to DisableLogonBackgroundImage. Double click it, and set its value to 00000001.
- That’s it, now close the Registry Editor and restart your computer and you should have solid color instead of background image while logging in.
- If for some reason you want to revert these changes, you just need to find DisableLogonBackgroundImage located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System and set its value to 00000000 or just delete it.
