Re: [WIN8] Easiest and simple way to replace log out screen?

said by KoRnGtL15:

Good point. I completely forgot to mention I have 2 users on here. 1 being admin and other being standard. SoonerAl. I am talking about the log out/first boot screen. I tried the following method from the link. It does not work for me though?

Implementation Steps for Local Group Policy

1. Patch the system with update “Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 cumulative update: November 2012” KB 2770917

2. Edit Local Policy

a. Run GPEDIT.MSC

b. Go this path “Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization”

c. Enable the GP “Force a specific default lock screen image”

d. Specify the path to the image file.

e. Click OK

3. Policy will be enforced as the next GP background refresh.

Also pretty sure I put in the correct file location? C:\Users\Brent\Pictures\HP_Phoenix1200.jpg the wallpaper is located in my pictures.

If you look closely at the group policy it seems this may not apply or work on a stand alone machine...

If you look at the end of this link, which I pointed you to in my first reply, perhaps that GP setting will do the trick...

I tried that and it did not work either. Why does MS make this so freaking difficult?
