How to Change Windows Start Screen background
Hi everyone in this blog I’m explaining about change windows
start screen background.
It is not to secret that windows 8 is unpopular. The same
goes for windows 8.1, a free update for the OS that was released back in April.
While you can choose to avoid the Metro UI when using Windows 8, having the
ability to change the background of the Start screen could at least make the
experience of interacting with Metro less of a headache.
In windows 8.1 you are able to set the background of your
Start screen to match the desktop background you can get to this setting one of
From the start screen press Win+c to open the charms bar,
and then click Settings then
click Personalize. In the list
of background options the bottom right will set it to your desktop background.
From the desktop right click the taskbar and select Properties. Click on the Navigation tab, and under start screen you
will see show my desktop background on start check the box next to it and press
ok to set that.
Change your background, colors, lock screen, and account picture:
In Windows 8 and Windows RT, there are a few new places to
show your favorite pictures and colors. On the Start screen, you can change the
background and color. The background shows up only on Start, but the color you
pick shows up in a few other places too, like the charms and the sign-in
screen. You can also make sure there's a favorite photo waiting to greet you on
your lock screen, and choose a few apps to show you info and updates you might
have missed while your PC was locked. And you can add some excitement to your
account picture — if you have a webcam, you can create a video clip to use
instead of a photo. Or if you have photo editing apps, you can use them to add
some finishing touches to a photo.
Here's how to try out these new picture and color options
for your lock screen, Start screen, and account picture:
Open the Settings charm, and then tap or click
Change PC settings.
Tap or click Personalize, and then tap or click
Lock screen, Start screen, or Account picture to change the options you want.
