How do you change the locked screen image ?

I lock my screen regularly at work and it would be nice to have a background as opposed to the default Windows 7 graphics.

That would be the log on screen and there is a tutorial for changing that screen to something other than the default. Log On Screen - Change

Now you will need admin privileges to change the default screen and I am thinking since we are still using betas and rc's and rtm's that your work pc has seven on it because you put it there? Just a heads up to you in case you are not the admin. Good luck to you and hope that you are enjoying your time here on SevenForums

I see your still using 7264. Come now don't you think its time to
upgrade that older VERSION. 7600 RTM IS SMOOTHER faster nicer more fun than 7264.
