Disable Windows 10 Logon Blur


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator flcdrg on 8/17/2019.

Starting with Windows 10 1903 the logon screen background wallpaper is blurred. This package removes this feature to keep it in line with previous version and un-blurs the background.


  • Windows 10 1903 (currently) - only previous version this should have no effect;
  • Administrator rights - this allows the registry entries to be updated and will fail without it;

To install Disable Windows 10 Logon Blur, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install disable-logon-blur

To upgrade Disable Windows 10 Logon Blur, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
