    Hi mother in-law has a laptop with Win 10 on it.
    Before she puts in her password she has a background of a skull and crossbones then another today of a helmet with chains. Any idea how to get rid of them?

    I'll try to get one tomorrow as I'll go around there with a camera as it happens before you put your password in and logon.

    Right click on the desktop after logging in and select personalise. In the list on the left is "lock screen". You can select your background there.
