Make Windows 8 login/lockscreen transparent?

(1/4) > >>

I like my wallpapers, much more than the solid "background color" Win8.1 shows on the login/lockscreen, based on my choice from the Personalise settings. If the Start screen can use my wallpaper in the background, why not login/lockscreen?

Anyone know how to make this happen?

Works for me.

Thanks, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for with regards to lockscreen. I don't want the same, fixed image for it, I want it to use the same image currently being used as desktop wallpaper, which changes regularly.

Also, I realize now that I may have misspoken. It seems that the lockscreen and the login screen aren't the same. I don't remember disabling the lockscreen, but in Settings, if I can choose a perfectly-proportioned (wrt my screen) picture, it will be saved as my choice. However, if I Win + L, I get the solid color-backed login screen that I see on startup.

Thanks. Now I know there are actually 2 lockscreens, and that what I'm looking for is how to put an image on the sign-in or login screen. Surfing around eightforums, it only ever mentions how to change the color of the login screen, no one seems to have figured out how to get an image there.
