Bginfo not updating
On Win 10 RTM and 1511, this background will either be a solid color or the neon-blue Windows wallpaper.
On 1607, the lock screen image will remain even once the login fields are shown.
Unfortunately, Microsoft changed the way the lock screen was handled in Windows Vista and 7, which broke BGInfo’s lock screen functionality.
Windows 10 changed things yet again and while BGInfo has been updated to support Win 10, we could not get it working for the lock screen.
Download the scripts here: Note the scripts themselves credits certain other sites and posts I’ve taken code from.
So in a Windows environment, we use bginfo in the all-users startup folder to write out server details to the desktop.
However, different people connect with different resolutions, and we share the account we use to connect with because we lack individual accounts at present.
The different resolutions cause bginfo to write its background at a slightly different offset each time, which means the background is garbled over time.
Additionally, the way the lock screen works is different in build 1511 (Threshold 2), 1607 (Anniversary) and 1607 with the September cumulative update.This is the way I make Bg Info work in Windows 2012 (and even Windows 7 too).It is a little different than in the past but I still need my Bg Info info screen displayed so this is what I figured out. Now we have Bg Info configured to be started from the Utilities folder on the Aero desktop, but also to be automatically executed at log in.Years ago, Mark Russinovich of Sysinternals fame (since bought by Microsoft) released the BGInfo utility, which served two purposes: to put various system information such as the computer name and free hard drive space on the desktop, and likewise to put the same info on the lock screen.In a large environment, that latter feature was extremely useful as it enables users and technicians to quickly see the name of a PC without having to log on and find the info.
