can I change the start screen

On the desktop in 8.1 I can change the wallpaper but it seems not on the start screen (unless I want it the same as the desktop!), is there a way of changing the start screen background to an image of my own?

No, in 8.1 the start screen offers only a selection of windows approved backgrounds and, if you have selected a personalised desktop wallpaper, that image but there seems no facility to add your own image...

Thanks for the link BRYNIT but this is for the lock screen not the start screen.

thanks Jock1e but, unless I'm missing something that only works on the desktop not on the start screen?
