I have this idea for a login screen, but I think it's a bit more technical than visual.
I think it would be really cool to use the currently used desktop background as login screen.
This way when you lock your computer your desktop icons disappear and the login image/password area appears.
Now that shouldn't be to much of a problem when you use one set desktop image, but here's the tricky part.
I use several desktop backgrounds. I use the slide show function so that my desktop changes every 30 minutes.
So I think it would be cool if it would automatically change login screen along with the currently used background.
I thought maybe a "see-through" image as login screen would fix this, but that wouldn't work.
I tried to use a see-through PNG file as login screen, but it just ended up being completely black and see-though JPG files aren't possible, correct me if I'm wrong there.
So maybe it's possible to use the registry to always use the current background image as login screen, something like that? This is where it goes beyond my knowledge but I feel like it should be programmable or something.
It would be really cool imo :)
