Changing the logon screen wallpaper

   Posted by: Dante   in General

For Windows 2003, it’s a simple registry hack:

System Key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
Value Name:
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)

Change it to the path that your BMP file resides (must be BMP) or blank it to have no wallpaper.

For Windows XP, the Fast-User switching has to be disabled, and the registry key is the same. To change the wallpaper with Fast-User switching on, a program called LogonXP has to be used.
