How to change Windows XP logon screen


Hi Raofaraz,

To change the background settings of your XP logon screen is rather easy and having some knowledge in editing your registry will make it even easier. If you all you have to do is follow these simple steps and you will be able to change your logon screen to whatever background you want.

First: Click on the Start Button and select the "Run" command.

Second: In the textbox simply type "regedit" and click on ok or just press your "Enter" key.

Third: After step two your registry editor will appear. Next you will have to navigate to "HKEY_USERS" then ".Default" then "Control Panel" and lastly "Desktop" and then double click on "Wallpaper".

Fourth: You have to enter the full path of the image filename you wish to use as your logon background. You have to make sure that the image a ".bmp" image or it will not work.

Fifth: Click on ok, close the register, and then restart your computer. All the changes will be saved and the next time you logon you will see the image you have selected as your background.

How to change Windows XP logon screen


If you are using Microsoft Windows XP and you want to change the logon screen, the easiest and best way to do it is with Windows XP LogonUI Changer. When I was still using Windows XP, I use this tool to regularly change my computer’s logon screen. To use this tool, you need to have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 installed on your computer.

Aside from changing your login screen, Windows XP LogonUI Changer allows you to rename a login screen, revert or restore to the default login screen, delete a login screen, preview a login screen, and add additional information for a login screen. Just a reminder: before applying a login screen, read the information that comes with the login screen carefully before applying it.

Some login screens come with instructions on how to install it. Applying the wrong login screen might disable the Windows logon screen and you won’t be able to log in to your computer.
