    Change Logon Screen Wallpaper


    On the screen where you type your password in, has anyone found a way to change the wallpaper? It's blue windows in smoke and does not match the rest of my theme.

    Thanks.

    That's all I could really find but I don't personally know if you can really change the login screen image.

    There is a software floating around to do what you desire but, I wouldn't bother for a number of reasons:

    1. How long are you actually at that screen? Yeah, it's cool to be able to do it and admire it but, after a while it's just 'meh...'

    2. I think the software messes with some 'Authentication .dll's' which throws up all kinds of red flags.

    3. It's probably a huge security risk.

    4. The next time you receive a Security Update, it'll get 'kicked out' anyway.

    This is that software, I haven'T used it, but in windows 8.1 i used a similar program . Don't think there is that big a risk but but feel free to be our guinea pig

    I used that one -- works like a charm! The map of Middle Earth now graces my login screen!

    Thanks for the information! Unfortunately that gave my machine cancer. I did a system restore which said it failed, and then it rebooted and it told me it worked. It caused the lock screen to flash between the lock screen and a blue screen with a loading wheel in it (although it appeared as a dot because it didn't have time to go around). Fine now but I don't want to touch that software again.

    If you like, here's another alternative to use the old or new sign-in screen, and one to use a solid color for the sign-in screen background.

    Cheers. I take it there's no way to change the colour?
