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.
