How to Prevent Users from Changing Lock Screen and Logon Image

In this post, you’ll learn how to prevent users from changing lock screen and logon image in Windows 10. Let’s begin.

Method #1

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization.

Then double-click “Prevent changing lock screen and logon image” in the right pane.

Select Enabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Note: To allow users to change the lock screen and logon image, follow the steps above but select Not Configured or Disabled.

Method #2

Launch Registry Editor. Before proceeding, I suggest taking a backup of the Registry.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Windows.

Click on Personalization. If you don’t see it, you need to create it. You can do this by right-clicking on the Windows key. Choose New > Key. Hit Enter after typing Personalization.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Type NoChangingLockScreen and then hit the Enter key.

Double-click it and provide 1 in the Value data field.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Note: To allow users to change the lock screen and logon image, replace 1 with 0 or delete the DWORD you created earlier.
