Is there a way to always show the lock-wallpaper instead of the accent color when shutting down/restarting?

It makes me wonder why someone uncovered topic from February and makes it another "My beloved system is the best!" argument. There are plenty of dedicated topics, where all the points you are making were already said... :rolleyes:

f you are going to write a three word sentance for something most of us think is s**** then please have the decency to explain "why"

OK will do.  Telemetry lets MS know anonymously how people use their computers, and directly reports to them any issues e.g. with drivers, 3rd-party software, and bugs with the OS so these problems can be repaired in a (hopefully) timely fashion.  In the old days one would need to send error reports via a website or speak with them on the phone.  With all of this data coming in to MS it can resolve these issues expediently.  Also, by understanding better how people are using their computers MS can better develop features which will allow us to use our computers more productively.

Good. :)

The issues being :

1) there is NO proof that this happens "anonymously" or "anonymously enough"
2) what is actually sent to MS is NOT adequately, let alone fully, documented
3) in the old way you reported a bug and were regularly ignored, what makes you think that the telemetry data is not also blatantly ignored? (the only good thing is that you don't have anymore to talk with some support rrepresentative attempting to put the blame on you - or read on a board pathetic attempts by totally clueless people)
4) and this is the worst part, the final result will be that we will be ONLY ALLOWED to use our computers in ways conforming to what the good MS guys believe that is better for us based - maybe - on how the majority of other people use their computers. (something between the Pareto principle and Wisdom of the crowd :ph34r:

Not really.

A conspiracy theorist would assume that since it is not documented the exact way the data is sent and which exact data is actually sent, then there must be something "evil" behind it.

The two statements are instead simply meaning that something is not documented and this may (or may not) be a violation of privacy (whatever remains of it on a internet connected machine :ph34r:).

Sorry @jaclaz, there is no privacy on the internet.  Only home alone in your room with the lights out, and the shades drawn. :whistle:

Sure :), I know, hence I explicitly specified "whatever remains of it on an internet connected machine".

And you want to call this something that is positive....?!! Microsoft couldn't resolve a p***** in a brewery....so us sending them information via telemetry isn't going to improve the situation....God I have seen some crap in my time since this Windows 10 crap came out but the telemetry is just for spying on us and if it resolved issues why are there so many problems.....3rd party software....? a lot of the problems we have now is because Microsoft in its so called wisdom wants you to let them look after drivers for hardware etc....and then the computer just dies....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are obviously unaware of the definition of spying.

Wasn't going to really say anything about this reply....just find it hard to believe that some people are so naive to think that Microsoft are actually trying to improve by telemetry updates.....

No....perhaps not but Microsoft are more willing to over step the boundaries of what is in the user's best interests.... are we really saving settings...private information....just to improve the user's experience?! Microsoft hide behind contracts that have been written by so called top law firms to protect their stupid arseses when they get caught....What Microsoft do is no better than the American government thinking it is OK to "spy" on everyone in the name of national security.....sorry, just no respect for a company whose employees seem to do what they like and think it is ok? I am of course refering to the so called support rep for Microsoft that was helping me with a customer computer and while connected to it did whatever she thought ok to fix the problem...including surfing dubious sites to get help to fix the problem.....

Version 1809 doesn't seem to change anything regarding the background on shutdown/restart screen.
