    • we change the path to our shard storage to get the log screen 
      The term 'Set-Screen' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, 
      verify that the path is correct and try again.

    • Set-Screen is the script name. You have to run it from PowerShell console:
      .\Set-Screen.ps1 -LockScreenSource "\\SERVER-FS01\LockScreen.jpg" -BackgroundSource "\\SERVER-FS01\BackgroundScreen.jpg" -LogPath "\\SERVER-FS01\Logs"

    • Thanks for the script! Works perfectly on my Windows 10 pro clients. I have some Windows 8 and Windows 7 Pro PCs on my network as well. Do you have a version of this script that can detect OS and run the corresponding commands? File locations are different on Windows 7, and I'm new to powershell :(

    • I can't find the registry key PersonalizationCSP to delete - is this a  problem?
      What do I change to insert the path of the file I wanna use?
      What else I gotta change, I think it's only the source file path right (lock screen only)?
      PS, RE [ahmad alhendi / ps didnt work] I think ".\" missing twice in your examples

    • It seems you have to delete the PersonalizationCSP from the registry before you can apply a different lockscreen.
      Has anyone found a way around this?
    • Hi Marc, do you mean delete PersonalizationCSP and reboot before changing it again?
  • Breaks the Control Panel?

    • Hi, I tried the script with win 10 1803 pro, It worked well BUT then I wanted to change the Lockscreen again with another image and It didn't work.
      I delete the Resgistry folder "PersonalizationCSP" and the C:\Windows\System32\LockScreen.jpg and I  rebooted the PC. I was able to change manually the lockscreen but when I used the script to change with  my new image It always used the first lokscreen image. It was like there is somewhere a copy of the lock screen.
      I checked the path in the  PersonalizationCSP and the C:\Windows\System32\LockScreen.jpg and the picture is good but the picture showne in the lockscreen.jpg is still the first one I used.
      Could you help me ? Thanks

      Is any change necessary to make it work?
    • I have no problem running it on Windows 1803 Pro. Lock screen changes as expected.
