Windows 10 Login Screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi does anyone know if you can change the windows 10 login screen using group policy. I know you could do this in the past but I am looking at doing this for the Win 8.1 and the newly installed win 10 machines without having to modify the registry on each machine. We would like the company logo on the login screens.
