I got irritated by the standard Windows 8 logon screen (the same one as lock screen). How do I change the background?

Do you have Microsoft account or local account? As I have heard you can customize login screen only if you are registered to a Microsoft account. – avirk Oct 6 '12 at 9:49
yeah, I have the Microsoft account linked with my Win8, so the solution worked for me. Can't tell about unregistered users though. – Nazar Gargol Oct 7 '12 at 16:39

Press Windows+I and go to "Change PC Settings" Very first things that shows up will be the options for the "lock screen image".
