How to Disable Login Background Picture in Windows 10
By default, Windows 10 displays the Windows Hero image at the login or sign-in screen. However, if you are not a fan of it and want a simple clean login screen without any picture, you can also disable it.

So, in earlier builds, you have to use a Registry hack to disable the login screen background picture. While in recent builds, you can do it from Windows 10 Settings.
