Windows 7: How do I Change Background only for Cltr + Alt + Delete

How do I Change Background only for Cltr + Alt + Delete


I know that by default, when you press ctl + alt + Delete, the wallpaper that will show up in the background will be the logon wallpaper. Is there any possible way that I can change or customize the wallpaper when you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete without changing the logon wallpaper?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Unfortunately not, the logon and logoff and ctl+alt+delete are all the same and cannot be separated.
