Move the User Icon on the login screen

I used the tutorial to change what the default logon screen is, which is super awesome that it was so easy to change... but I was wondering if its easy to move the size/position of the user icon? Any info would be great!

Cheers

Hello Shadehv,

I do not believe that it is possible to do in Windows 7 at this time. It will most likely take a 3rd party program to do this if possible.

Sorry,
Shawn

Not an option as of yet, at least from what I know.

As stated above, that will probably take some sort of specific application to address the desired function.

If you remove password option in User Accounts, the icon becomes the size as appear when u click Start. You can always re-create this password option, and if you are worried about people able to RDP into your machinem no need, they can't due to password requirement and if there isn't one they simply can't.

Btw, if they make this logon box dynamic as in Xp, then my issue with screen lock not appearing on both dual monitor might be fixed.
