Previously we show you how to change lock screen wallpaper in Windows 11. The lock screen is the first thing you see when you start up your PC. Besides the wallpaper, there are other elements that you can customize. We’ll see now how to customize lock screen in Windows 11.

Customize the Windows 11 wallpaper

To get started, we’ll first take a look at how to change the wallpaper as a refresher. To get started, click the Start button and the Settings icon. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut key Windows + I to directly open the Setting.

Also noteworthy that you can right-click on an empty area of ​​the desktop and click Personalization on the menu.

Either way, go into Settings, make sure that the option to Personalization is selected in the left panel. Then on the right, scroll down and click Lock screen from the list.

Then click the drop-down menu next to the “Customize your lock screen” button to change the image. As we’ve covered before, there are three options including:

  • Windows Spotlight: Images are automatically set by Windows.
  • Image: This allows you to choose a Microsoft image or a photo from your collection. You have to search for it and set it as your lock screen wallpaper.
  • Slide presentation: Allows you to select a folder with photos and other images in it, and these will rotate at regular intervals.

Tips on the lock screen

If you don’t want to see statements (possibly ads) from Microsoft on your screen, uncheck “Get fun facts, tips, tricks, and more on your lock screen.”

You can also choose which apps show details on the lock screen. Some applications include Weather, Xbox Console Companion, Mail, and Calendar. Keep in mind that if you do not want any details of the application to be displayed, select None.
