How to remove lock screen image

I do it mainly on servers to improve lock screen connection on slow internet access.

Important to note is that it works with Windows Server or Windows 10 Enterprise / LTSC only.

Run gpedit.msc
  • Go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization
