Windows 7: Can you change the size of the Icon at the Log On screen?

Can you change the size of the Icon at the Log On screen?

I've looked through the Tutorial for the Log On Screen and the answer to my question didn't jump out at me.

I have a work laptop with Win 7 Enterprise, and both home PCs have Professional. The icon at the logon screen on my work laptop is much larger than my home PCs. So, is there a tweak that I can use to increase the size of the icon at the logon screen?

Thanks,

Greg

With multiple accounts I don't believe you can. When you only have one account it is the larger size. The size is 128x128. There is no tweak that I know of, I have looked everywhere.

I only have one account on my home PCs so doesn't sound like it applies to my situation. I wonder if it something unique to the Enterprise edition of Windows 7.

Thanks,

I can't see how changing the view here will change the size of the icon on the log on screen. This only changes the icon view under uninstall programs? What's the connection to the log on screen?

What am I missing here Howling Wolves? I don't see how this will answer my question.

About the only thing you can do is to only have one user account for a large user icon at logon, or have more than one user account to have small icons for the user accounts at log on instead

I have one account but I don't have a password set for the account. So when I added a password to access my only account, the log on screen displays a larger icon with a place to enter the password.

So it appears that there is no hack to increase the icon size, now that I have a password set to my account the log on screen has adjusted.

thanks All!
