Windows 7: How to move items on Windows7 logon screen

How to move items on Windows7 logon screen

I tried to edit windows\system32\authui.dll - UIFILE with Restorator to customize my windows 7 logon screen.
What I want to do is to move the user icon, user name and also the password editor to bottomleft of the screen. I found it uses layout and layoutpos to decide where a element should be put. But I don't know how do functions like "filllayout, flowlayout(0,2,0,2)" work.

I wonder if there is any document describes how to use it,
or anybody could tell me how to.

The system file to be mod is authui.dll
Tools needed - Resource Hacker


Open authui.dll with resource hacker...under UIFILE expand 12400 folder scroll down to line 120


Original XML
<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,2,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">

Modify XML
<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,0,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">


Change the value to "0" to control it to the bottom left ( highlighted in red above )....."1" to control it to the bottom right....
Default bottom center.
Do the same to folder 12401 and 12402....logoff or restart to take effect.


Just a word of caution : I will recommend you to set a system restore date.... if you get hit by a black screen just restore it.
and go into safe mode F8 ...when you replace the authui.dll.



Hope it works for you..
