Windows 7: Custom logon & logoff screen wallpaper

18 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32-bit
Custom logon & logoff screen wallpaper

Windows uses only one logon & logoff screen wallpaper. I have manually customize my logon screen wallpaper and would like to know if there is way to customize the logoff screen wallpaper with a different wallpaper than the logon wallpaper. Meaning, 2 wallpapers, one for each task. Thank you for your time.

I do not believe this is possible.

A logon screen solution for you!

Hey, you should try the Win7LogonBackgroundChanger it is third party and freeware but I use it and it makes my logon screen look amazing! Sorry I don't have a link, just Google search Win7LogonBackgroundChanger and you'll find it quite easily. You can very easily choose any custom image as the background for your logon screen and it automatically sizes and applies the wallpaper to the logon screen. Have fun customizing!

PS is there a way to screen capture the logon screen from the computer you want to get an image of the logon screen on?

Hello Petrelli,

It seems that you may have misunderstood Edwarde's question.

Yes, you can easily change the log on screen background image to whatever you like. However, Edwarde was wanting to have a different image on both the log on and log off screen. This is not possible since it's the same screen used for both.

Hope this clears things up.
