When I open my laptop a screen saver appears before I log in. I am bored of this screen saver and have tried most things to change it to no avail. PLEASE save me from my madness and give me the 'magic' answer. (It's not the screen saver)

Also a friend logged into her account on my computer and I can't remove her account or log into it!!! Grrrr!

You're using Windows? Which one?

If you're running Win 10 build 14291 or later, go to the Settings menu and go to Personalization > Lock screen and scroll down until you see Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen. Toggle this setting to On.

Right-click on the windows icon in bottom left-hand corner, select control panel. Select user accounts->manager other accounts.

You have to be logged in with Administrator rights to do this, usually the first account you created when you set up the PC will have this.
