Hey guys! I thought I would write up a small guide of a very simple by effective tweak.
Most of you will know about this but for those who don't I'll show you how. Basically, we are going to change the Windows 7 login screen (and also the image the comes up behind the options on the CTRL+ALT+DEL Screen).
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:
Once you're there create a 32bit DWORD named OEMBackground
and make sure the value is 1.
Now for the next key, navigate too:
And then create another 32bit DWORD called UseOEMBackground
and set the value to 1.
Once you've done step 1 navigate to the following location using Windows Explorer.
If the file background is not present then create it.
Now simply place any image of your choice into this folder and make sure you name it backgoundDefault
Note: The image size must not be bigger than 256kb otherwise it will not work.
Let me know how you guys get on! Hope you enjoy the guide.
