How do I get rid of the picture that appears on startup on my Windows 10 computer?

I'v been doing well in customizing my screen to exactly what I want, but I can't seem to find instructions online that accurately explain how to just have a blank screen on startup.

To be sure, this is the very first screen that appears, with the current time and date in white against various landscapes, ocean views, etc.

All I want is the traditional blue screen (which I used the built-in personalization tools to set up) that appears behind my main screen with shortcuts.

I thought this would be a simple thing to do, but after several attempts, maybe not!
