# Wallpaper Engine on the Windows lock screen

The Windows lock screen is a protected area of Windows which does not allow for live and dynamic wallpapers. Microsoft has purposefully built it this way as a security measure.

However, you can still configure Wallpaper Engine to override the static lock screen image with a snapshot of your current live wallpaper. To do this, enable the Override lock screen image option in the General tab of the Wallpaper Engine settings.
