    Hi good buddies, I have searched this site as best I can w/o finding this (very minor) 'issue' adressed anywhere, so here goes:

    I wonder if there is any way to change the 'welcome'-screen (I don't know the correct term but trust you understand what I'm driving at) from the, imho, silly, tame powder-blue with peace-dove carrying olive-branch thingy.

    Anything would be an improvement, even a blank screen; better still would be a way of choosing my own image.

    Thank you for your help :cool:

    Btw I really, really, like Windows 7.
    Microsoft did good with this one.
    I'm a fossil that has been around
    since DOS 2.0, I like to think I know
    what I'm talking about.

    Found a way.

    This is in response to my own question, so to speak, and probably everybody but me knew this; but the free utility tweakslogon allows you to select a logon-screen picture:

    Yeah, that's most likely a better way - the boot process seems a bit slower now since I switched. I created a restore point before I started fiddling with the logon-screen so I guess I'll go back and try your suggestion.

    Also, I suppose it's generally a good idea to use native, built-in utilities if possible and avoid third-party software. Thanks for the tip jeradw :)

    Logon Screen Rotator 2.0.0.0

    This is a cool app. But I have not yet tested 2.0.0.1
    The only real problem has been that it was single user specific.
    This should be changed in the new version. Will report back when I can test it later tonight.

    I do recommend this app for Logon Screen rotation. Rarely have the same logon screen twice in a row.

    Logon Screen Rotator 2.0.0.1


    It still only changes logon screens for the user that ran the setup initially.
    Hopefully this will be able to be fixed.

    I like this one. I hate trying to mess around editing files.
