When starting my Win11 , I get the blue Win11-logo first ( normal) , then after a few seconds , it shows my choosen picture with my name on it , in a black screen ( used to be blue in Win10) .
Tried to change this in " personalization " , by choosing the blue "waves" picture from Win11 , no luck it stays totally black !
HOW to change this behaviour , and get the standard blue Win11 start-screen back ??

Check the checkbox that says Start Menu and Taskbar in Personalization\Colors

" Check the checkbox that says Start Menu and Taskbar in Personalization\Colors "...........yes , tried several times , but I can only get a totally black startscreen or the photo with the ( grey) firetower on it !
When choosing the ( standard ) blue Windows 11 waves , it wont showup only the grey firetower again !!

Will try a sfc /scannow ............

Use a dark mode on Colors, it grays out on Light modes.

Here's a picture of a Default Blue on Win10, Click it and press Download.

winblue.jpg

Set it as your default lock screen wallpaper.
It is a 4k picture, so it can suit even high res monitors.
