Recently, when Microsoft updated Windows 10, they included a new User Interface (UI) feature which blurs the background image of the sign-in screen. Some users enjoy this feature, while others prefer the previous, non-blurred version. One person who doesn't like this UI feature is Miguel. Miguel feels the new UI isn't as colorful and he doesn't want to uninstall the current operating system. If you prefer to not have the blurred background on the sign-in screen, follow these simple steps:
Figure 1. The Edit DWORD (32-bit) Value dialog box.
To turn blurring back on, repeat the steps above, and at step 7 change the "1" back to a "0" the change will take effect as it did before.
Now you can turn off the blurring effect, and if you're like Miguel, you can enjoy the photo you have chosen as your background image when you sign-in to your computer.
