    Since Ive already shared with you my favorite wallpaper for Windows Phone 8.1 and some of my apps on my Start screen, I figured Id finish the week up with something on my Lock screen. Granted, Ive been known to change this often, depending on which app adds support for that feature. But today Im back to an oldy but goody: The blurred Start screen.
    As you can see in the above photo, it looks like my Lock screen is an opaque but see-through window to my Start screen. Unfortunately, transparent Lock screens are not back, but you can simulate the effect with a few easy steps.
    This idea goes way back to March 2013, when user Joe920 posted it in our forums. That thread, found here, has become quite the fun spot to share ideas, and since we have a lot of new users, its time for a refresh. You can follow the steps in that thread, but theres an easier way in 2014, that Ill share with you now.
