    Hi, how's it goin'? I was wondering, with the file path "C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds" and the "regedit.exe" path "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background\OEMBackground" you can make your logon screen have a custom background, but in "C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds" can you make have more then one "backgroundDefault", and set it by changing "OEMBackground"'s value to 2?

    Thanks a bunch for your precious time!

    No, you can't. The DWORD OEMBackground is used as a switch 0 use the regular Windows background, 1 use an OEM branding background (the backgroundDefault image)


    To switch out backgrounds you would need to rename a different image to backgroundDefault
