Many users limit themselves to using Windows as it comes, but others (like me) like to change its look to their particular like. Today, we will continue to see ways to customize windows to our personal like. With this in mind, let’s detail the method to customize the background and lock screen

Go to personalization

Windows 10 has a specific section to customize its appearance. As new updates arrive, these functions have been improved. To enter it, click on Windows and then on the toothed wheel (settings).

Customizing background.

In this first window, we will see how to customize the background. With this in mind, we are located on background, there we will see 3 options to choose: Picture, to select any image we have archived. Solid color, to choose a solid color background. If we choose this option, Windows will offer us a palette of colors to use the one we like the most. And finally, slideshow to show a random presentation of the images saved in our pc.

However, not only can we change the images to the lock screen, but it is also possible to add an application to show its detailed status. And another app to show quick status. For this purpose, we choose the apps to show on the lock screen. In my case, I select the app calendar to show detailed and Mail, Calendar and Skype to show quick status. But the user has the possibility to choose the apps he wants. By the same token, if you want the changes to apply to both the home screen and the lock screen, you just have to select the option: show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen.
