You know the default blue lock screen image? that still appears at the initial boot up screen after Windows has loaded where my username is displayed briefly in the middle. I did change the lock screen background and it is what shows up when I lock my computer but why is the initial loading screen after windows has loaded still stuck on the dafgault image?

There are a couple tweaks in Winaero that might break something else in Windows 11.
So it's always a good idea to use backup software.

I use Macrium Reflect, and some use AOMEI Backupper.
Once you have a decent backup system... you can pretty much try anything. If you break something, just restore from a backup. :-)

Here's my Macrium quickie guide...


And here's some other tweaks I've collected...
