How do I replace the background logo of a signature certificate in windows 10? Trying to replace the trifoil log with my own.

I have seen the post on how to do this on other OS's but I can't figure out how to do it in windows 10.

What you're asking about is also called a watermark, as opposed to a signature appearance. See section 2.2.2.2 of the following document: http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/DigSig/Acrobat_DigSig_WorkflowGuide.pdf In short, you have to create a PDF (named SignatureLogo.pdf) of the watermark and install in a particular location on the system.

I have my logo saved in the correct file location:

C:\Users\D3476421\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\2017\Security

Danie5CDC_0-1630439432393.png

 

But for some reason I only get the Adobe logo:

Danie5CDC_1-1630439461705.jpeg

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Are you sure you installed it in the right location? Are you logged in as "D3476421"? Are you using Acrobat 2017?

Ah, that was it! I'm using Acrobot 2021. I went to a different file location (DC instead of 2017), saved the logo, and now I'm all set! Thank you!!
