My daughter has Windows 8 and can't work out how to change the screen that appears one the machine has started (I'm not sure what the correct name is). She's googled it but can't find any information. I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me (and her) some suggestions.
Thanks

The lock screen in Windows 8 is changed through Settings, not Group Policy ;)

Go to the Start screen, type "lock screen" and select the Change lock screen settings option :)
