With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft added lots of new things in the latest operating system and lock screen with apps was a new concept. You have remembered that Windows 7 and all other previous operating system by Microsoft that had a single start screen with plain design and nothing else. Lock in Windows 8 gives more features like time, network status, social updated and many other similar things.
Customization of Lock Screen:
Lock Screen has a special role in Windows 8 but it does not have customization option. Windows 8 users can only change its background and have some limited personalization setting to change the Lock Screen. Few months back I have reviewed one freeware Windows 8 app called Chameleon to set the random pictures at Lock Screen. And here is the new customization tool called Lock Screen Customizer that allows you to tweak existing Lock Screen personalization settings. It has nice UI with live preview of the changes you will make.
Lock Screen Customizer offer direct option to change the screen image as well as live preview of changes. Along with background changes you can do some more interesting stuff without any manual hacking or tweaking.
The Things You can do with Lock Screen Customizer?
- Background image;
- Date language;
- Time format (12/24 hours)
- Color set for sign in screen;
- Add Lock Screen Slideshow with auto-changing background images every time you sign in.
- Enable verbose logon messages (see video below);
- Disable Lock Screen.
To disable the Lock Screen permanently from Windows 8, you can choose Logon Behavior option that can disable the Lock Screen and move your startup to Start Screen. To set random picture’s slideshow as Lock Screen background, you can click on Lock Screen Slideshow button and set the folder that contains your favorite picture.
This tool is handy and cool enough as you don’t need to change registry settings and personalize setting to change the Windows 8 Lock Screen. Using this Lock Screen Customization tool you can do all the customization work with one click without following the lengthy steps to tweak the registry setting. Lock Screen Customizer is available for 32bit and 64bit Windows 8 version.
