How to Change Lock Screen Image in Windows 8
Change Lock Screen
Canned Statement: Let me go ahead and assist you in changing the lock screen for you.
Open the Charms bar by pressing Windows Key + C or moving your mouse to the upper right hand corner.
Then go ahead and click on Settings.
At the very bottom, click on Change PC Settings. You’ll see there is an option at the top called Personalization, but that will just take you to the Windows settings dialog I took a screenshot of above.
Now on the left, you should be under the Personalize option.
On the right hand side, you’ll see an option for Lock Screen. This is where you can actually change the Lock Screen image in Windows 8.
You can either pick one of the images that they already have or you can go ahead and select your own image by clicking on the Browse button. Here is where you can also control which apps are able to display notifications even when Windows 8 is locked.
Click on the + icon and you’ll get a list of apps that support sending notifications. As of right now, it’s just a few of the default Metro apps that ship with Windows 8, but eventually as developers write more Metro apps, you’ll be able to add those to your lock screen.
