I know you can boot to desktop, but yes, I do want to keep the login. I also tend to lock my computer quite a bit.-jshare (March 17, 2015, 09:51 AM)
It only affects that first sign in screen, (one would hope that you'd be hanging around the minute or so waiting for the computer to boot), any time after when you lock the computer or log out it'll drop back to the lock screen (with whatever wallpaper you've chosen), from there you'll only get the solid colour when you enter your password to unlock/log in again, a matter of a few seconds.
That's the way it's working here in W8.1Pro.-4wd (March 17, 2015, 03:32 PM)
Just asking but if this is the first sign in screen you come to when you first turn on the computer then you can effectively bypass it by having auto-login set, is that an option or do you want to keep the computer password protected at boot?-4wd (March 16, 2015, 06:14 PM)
This may be some help:

Is it just me or am I the only person in the world that sees absolutely no use for a lock screen?-Carol Haynes (March 16, 2015, 08:35 AM)
Well, I do use the lockscreen, but it would baffle me if it was transparent, it's mostly used to keep my screen content invisible from prying eyes while I'm away from my desk (and because our security policy demands me to use it )-Ath (March 16, 2015, 09:29 AM)
If anyone would know it would be in the Customization SubForum-MilesAhead (March 16, 2015, 09:33 AM)

That's odd. I thought that happened only if you once had a trial installed in the past. Guess it's a bug then.

Or make a fence containing multiple icons which you want to hide, and make that "fence" or area visible as needed. DL a trial and give it a shot.-J-Mac (September 04, 2014, 05:25 AM)
The scheduling means you pretty much have to use a service that's easier to use than Task Scheduler, or one of those Task Scheduler Gui front ends.
Then as skwire says, move to some holding folder and move back.
I'd ask around on Gizmo's freeware forum. There may be some esoteric thing already out there.-MilesAhead (September 04, 2014, 05:37 AM)
No, you don’t need a rule for each icon. You put the icons you wish to hide in one fence and hide that area. Make it visible when you want and invisible when you want. Works here.

Does the OP have that option enabled? Let's ask.
Personally I hate seeing desktop.ini files in "empty" folders so I never enable it.-MilesAhead (September 03, 2014, 03:03 PM)
Desktop icons can be either actual files or shortcuts (which are actually LNK files). So, short of moving particualr files to, say, a temp folder and back to the desktop on a schedule, which seems a bit hackish, I don't think what you want is elegantly possible.-skwire (September 03, 2014, 02:07 PM)
MetroTwit has had a new release in v1.0! with several new features, it's worth looking into.-lanux128 (March 30, 2012, 03:46 AM)
