Note: Selected an SVG or PNG image and do not select another image until you are sure that you wish to replace it with your default logon image, as there is no OK or confirmation prompt when you change the image. The moment you select a picture it instantly replaces your default logon screen image. It is advised to backup your computer in case you wish to revert the changes.
