How To Change Windows 7 Logon Screen Easily [Without Using Hacks & Tools]
Posted March 16, 2009 10:55 am in: Windows 7, Windows 7 Guides


Finally Microsoft has incorporated a new feature in the latest version of Windows which allows the end user to change the logon screen background without having to use any hacks or third-party tools. In previous version of Windows, user had no option but to use third-parry tools like TuneUp-Utilities to change the logon screen background. But in Windows 7, the case is different. Windows 7 now supports customization of Windows 7 logon screen officially. Replacing the old logon screen is as easy as changing desktop wallpaper (desktop background). Thanks to withinwindows for finding out this excellent feature.

Here ya go. Source included for the curious (and paranoid. NO MALW ARE!) Feel free to do anything w ith it. Does all this in one go: * Enables/Disables the registry key * Resizes the selected image to your current rez (or any other size if you tell it to) * Sets it to 96dpi 24bit * Finds the highest JPG compression that w ould still keep it below 256kb * Saves it as backgroundDefault.jpg in the correct folder (and create a backup if one is already in there) 2.

@ Keith Hanly: group policy editor (gpedit.msc) is only available to those w ith Professional or Ultimate editions. @ Everyone else: If you have a home edition of W indow s 7, you need to edit the registry. 20.

Posted February 9, 2010 at 6:06 am | Perm alink

you did say: w ithout using any hacks or third-party tools and then immediately follow ing described how to hack the registration files respectfully this post is a fail. heres w hy: although this trick may w ork, and I may end up trying and using it it means manually editing the registry files *OR* dow nloading a program w hich means this is *NOT* as easy as changing your background image. *AND* w indow s has *NOT* included changing your log-in screen easily. the topic and title should have been: Change your W indow s 7 log-in screen w ith a simple reg edit 21.

Restore your system to the previous system restore point by booting into the W inRE environment. To do this, just turn on your PC, hit F8 key and then select Advanced options. In the install screen, click Repair my computer and finally click restore my computer to earlier restore point. 40.

Worth reiterating that 19201080 is NOT supported. I think I just saw 19201200 in the list and read it as 1080. I just copied my image to both backgroundDefault.jpg and background1920x1200.jpg instead of background1920x1080.jpg but left both images at a 19201080 resolution and it w orks. Not sure w hich of those 2 names really did the trick but I dont w ant to break it playing w ith figuring that out. 44.

Hello, I have an alienw are laptop that came w ith this regedit already installed (so that it came w ith a cool alienw are logon screen). Unfortunately, I think after a w indow s update or something, the logon screen reverted back to the original w in 7 picture (lame). I cant figure out to fix this, none of the .exe files w ork. I dont w ant to just delete the file out of the system32 folder since its a registry edit and reinstall. Can/should I do that? The image is named properly and is in the info folder. Im using w in 7 home premium 64 bit. Thank you in advance! 45.

I have used logonStudio since vista came out and it has w orked great, even w ith w in7. How ever, I just bought a Dell Inspiron 570 for a customer and it came w ith an OEM login screen. LogonStudio could not change it. So, I used the regedit file provided here, follow ed the loacation in the registry and changed it from a value of 1 to a value of 0. Now LogonStudio w orks! It seems that dell has used the information here to change the default logon. thanks for the reg file, it helped me find w hat value to change. 47.

i am using mouse w ithout borders, there is an option Personalize logon screen, set it to Local or dont need to bother about resizing and renaming the file less than 256kb and desktopBackground. It automatically creates the oobe\info\backgrounds, and sets the registry key to 1. 104.

I am not sure w hy people are giving such idea to just simply change a w indow s logon screen. This is the simplest one. No registry edit. Very simple. Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts Then on left hand side, Click change your picture and brow se the appropriate one. Now , Restart and see the change. Thats it. So simple. 120.

@ Binaya Bhandari Your method only changes the User picture w hereas this guide helps you change the logon screen background. 121.
