The Windows 10 lock screen can be more than just a password entry screen. It can be configured to show application notifications, calendar appointments, plus the date and time. You can add your own photos to the background or let Windows view images randomly. And here are a handful of tips for customizing the Windows 10 lock screen.
You have three options for the background of the lock screen: Picture, Slide Show, or Windows Highlight. The Image option lets you choose one of your photos for the background; the slide show lets you choose a folder that will go through a collection of photos.
The Highlight Windows select high-resolution photos of the Bing home page (this option is my favorite for the quality and variety). To choose, click the Windows menu, choose Settings> Personalization> Lock screen. Now, just choose the desired option in the background.
Add some apps
Its lock screen can do more than just show off beautiful landscapes. You can add up to eight applications that will display quick notifications – one application to display detailed statuses and seven applications to show fast statuses.
