How to change logon / lock screen? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Windows 8 you go to the right charm bar, click settings, the click change pc settings.  You're then able to customize the logon and lock screen.

    In Server 2012, the change pc settings button is missing.  Is there a way to get to these settings?

  • I use the GUI, and I don't believe there is a way to change the login screen, or any part of the GUI.

  • It was the Desktop Experience.

    Thanks!

    You can if you have the Desktop Experience feature installed.

  • Having to install desktop experience to change a lock screen on a server is just plain dumb.  This is a server that runs Hyper-V I don't want media player and all that other junk on it.  I just want to have the actual server name on the lock screen so I can see quickly which one I am on.

    Back to searching for a real, and obviously non Microsoft solution, so I don't need to add bloat-ware to my server.

  • I got around this by creating a custom background with the server name on it.

    I know it is not an answer to your question but it may be a temporary solution to your issue.
