I'm new here so forgive me if I'm not following proper thread etiquette.

I downloaded Mojave for my MacBook a few days ago and was wondering if anyone else noticed the significantly larger avatar icon for the login screen.

I'm also wondering why when I when I take a screenshot using the keyboard shortcut (command + shift + 4) , the screenshot image file is prefixed with "LW" so the default screenshot name changed to "LWScreenShot...)

I attached the screenshot below referencing both questions above.

I can’t really say that I have noticed the login screen avatar being larger. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t, just means I didn’t notice. I never really paid much attention to the old one

The LW prefix assigned to your login screen screen shot stands for Login Window, which makes sense

Edit: not sure if there is anyway to change that default

Thanks for your quick reply! That makes a lot of sense :)

Sorry for not being more observant regarding the first part of the question. I guess I just never paid attention to it. Maybe because I generally have the watch unlock the computer
Bit off the original topic...how are you able to unlock your macbook through your watch? Is it through your icloud, homesharing, etc?

It's a checkbox under System Preferences ->Security and Privacy->General->Allow your Apple Watch to unlock your Mac
Would you only see this option if you have an Apple Watch synced with your devices (through icloud)?
