Thank you @mood for the heads up!
Still a preview. Not on Windows Update yet. Thanks for the link. Most folks won't know about it until later.
Under 'optional updates' on Windows Updates.
Machine restarted twice while configuring, no issues with it.
EDIT.. forgot to add that on my machines once I selected to install it it returned to the main updates page while it did its thing in the background. A bit strange.
I've checked on 3 PCs. Nothing.
It is. =
Reboot and check again.
It's showing up now on 1 of them. No changes necessary. Haven't checked the others.
Yes, you can install the August Windows and Office patches now by Woody Leonhard.
Anyone else try installing KB4571744 on 20H2? I put it on 1 PC as I was leaving work. It took longer than I expected but it did boot. Didn't get to check anything else but the build number, which is now 19042.488. I assume it shouldn't hurt anything or it would have refused to install.
No not yet. Still running 19042.487
Yes. Updates usually roll around here like clockwork betw. 12:00 and 2:00 so when it didn't show up, I just downloaded it via the Update Catalog. I expected obstacles of some sort but it downloaded and installed properly in around 7 min. or so. Seems to be OK so far.
Spoiler: winver 20H2
Thanks. I'll probably go ahead and roll it out on my personal machines.
I am clueless as how to fix this one. So I am open to all ideas.
Ever since I upgraded to Win 10 2004, my sign-on/off screen always shows this pic:
Note this is not the same as my selected lock screen which appears at system startup time. Yes, I have the option to set sign-on screen to lock screen in Personalization settings enabled. I have never had this issue on any Win 10 build I had installed.
Researching this on the web yields there was a utility that could be downloaded to set sign-on screen to that of lock screen but it doesn't work on later Win 10 vers.; those that now have the option in Personalization settings. It is as if my Win 10 2004 build reverted back to prior Win 10 behavior in this regard.
-EDIT- I just noticed something. The screen image I posted is associated with Win Spotlight. Appears this has been forced enabled on my sign-on screen although I have the block setting for Spotlight disabled via OOShutup10.
Mine has always been this one.
Yeah @itman that is a Windows Spotlight default picture. Strange that it showed up if you have it blocked.
Maybe OOShutUp10 has a bug or something changed in Windows and they haven't updated to work with it. Maybe Microsoft changed a registry key or locked it so it can't be changed anymore. Things I used to customize no longer work anymore.
1) Disable that setting in O&O ShutUp 10 then reboot
2) set your lock screen to whatever you want
3) Make sure you don't have any tweak which disables the lock screen.
This reg file will re-enable it if you had it disabled somehow:
I have had same, for some time now, and have never managed to fix it. And no O&O ShutUp10 here.
Although I have settings as per @Triple Helix post #6363, which is how I want it.
Edit: And still waiting for Win 10 v2004 on that machine. Doubly annoying.
At this point I would skip 2004 and go directly to 20H2. ISOs are available. Image your drive first. Or you could wait. It won't be much longer.
Without being an insider?
If so, where to download?
I had tried this prior to my original posting and it did not work.
I was learning toward this last night after I had posted that Spotlight was showing the screen I posted. So this is what I did with some very interesting results and activity:
1. After disabling the Spotlight mitigation in OOShutUp10 and rebooting, the picture shown in Personalization setting was changed to the screen shot I posted. In other words, at this point lock screen and sign-on screens were in sync.
2. I then changed the picture to one I wanted. Immediately dllhost.exe fired up to run rundll32.exe. A clear indication that Spotlight was still active although not so indicated in Personalization settings.
3. I then re-enabled the Spotlight mitigation in OOShutup10 and everything is still working OK.
So it appears to me that MS is making it increasing difficult to disable their telemetry in each subsequent Win 10 upgrade.
Also, thanks for all the suggestions guys.
Yeah, I don't like most of Microsoft's default pictures myself--besides, they're all blurred anyway, yuck. I have my own picture and it's been staying put, thankfully. Other System settings of mine have been secretly reverting to defaults, though, like several in msconfig related to the hardware. It's annoying. It's like there's not much respect for a user's preferred settings sometimes. Either that or a glitch.
Plus, it's necessary to have Optional (Full) Telemetry enabled for the Insiders...and settings still revert to defaults without any action on my part.
So not surprising that the lockscreen setting would revert also.
I also came across this article: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/82156-reset-re-register-windows-spotlight-windows-10-a.html on how to reset Win 10 Spotlight back to default settings. This might be the solution for some where Personalization in regards to picture option is totally busted. Reset Spotlight and then see if the picture option in regards to lock screen now fully works.
I thought I had seen public links somewhere but after doing some looking it is still probably (legally) limited to insiders.
Any time. Yes before I disable the lock screen I always set the lock screen I want first then I disable it, that way it sticks. Thanks for reporting your success story in detail.
Nooo none are blurred out, it's just Microsof's dumb way of wanting to screw up this OS as much as possible.
If you have Windows with an edition that has the Group Policy Editor, here is where you can remove this blur:
If you don't have the Group Policy Editor, then there is a registry hack to do this, see: https://www.howtogeek.com/426554/how-to-disable-the-login-screens-background-blur-on-windows-10/
