How to Change Windows 7 Logon Screen Background

Windows 7 is the latest operating system from Microsoft. I see many people ask how to Change Windows 7 Logon Screen. In previous version of Windows, user had to use third-party tools to change the logon screen. Windows 7 now supports the end user to change the logon screen without third-party software . In this article we shall look into how you can change the logon screen manually.


1.    Open up Registry Editor. This can be done by typing “rgedit” into the “run box”.

2.    Search through the registry to find the key "HKEY\Software\Microsoft
\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background". After you have done this, in the right area change the value of OEMBackground to 1.

3.    In start or search again, type or copy %windir%\system32\oobe and hit enter. Copy your image to be the logon background here. Right click and make a new folder here called info, then another inside info called backgrounds. Place your logon image here and rename it to "backgroundDefault.jpg". That's it, on the next reboot you should have a custom Windows 7 logon screen. With Windows 7, and a custom logon screen, you should now be the envy of all your computer pals.
