When starting up my PC, a chosen “Welcome Screen” background picture shows, which has a small circle superimposed on it, and this circle contains a picture. I would simply like to have my chosen background picture appearing, that is, no circle and picture therein. Is there any way to arrange this, please?

What OS for starters and what version home, pro or starter?

Sorry, but that has the opposite effect of what I am trying to achieve. After following your recommendation, I am now left with the small circle with a picture in it, and no background picture screen showing (see the second part of my original question - post #1 )

Post a screen shot of what you are getting?

You may need to take a picture using a camera or cell phone.

This is what is showing at startup - I want to be able to show only a background picture rather than the circle and content.

Is this when you have a "Locked" screen or when you have rebooted the machine for a restart?

Do you shut down or just put the machine to suspend/sleep or hibernate?

Each time I reboot the machine from it being off, or if I restart it, this is what I see just prior to seeing my desktop. I never use sleep or hibernate.

Hi, I don't believe you can alter this (other then putting a picture in the small screen, by default this screen is a reduced pic of your desktop) I have been asked this before, the profile service is at this stage preparing your users desktop, the alternative is to have a blank, black screen.
If anyone has a way, we would appreciate it.

BTW, in my case it only appears for a second or two. Then the desktop loads, so it doesn't bother me.

Jenae - similarly, it only appears for a couple of seconds with me, so no great worries. It was only a thought. On reflection, I will probably just leave things as they are as they are not causing me any hardship! But thanks anyway for your input.

So you are telling us that you do not need to type in your password?

Well, I looked at it, but that only tells how to change the picture! What I wanted to know is how to have NO small circle containing a picture, as indicated in the second part of my original post above (#1)
