There is no way to take a screenshot of the welcome screen without using third-party tools. Or a camera.

Bump. I have the same problem. I can barely see them when viewing on my TV from the couch. Any solution to increase the font size or scale them up in general?

Hello Irha, and Knoughtyd,

The only workaround that I know of for this is to log on with the user name and password to have a large icon. However, you will also have to enter the user name, and you will not have a display picture for the icon anymore.

Hope this helps some,

How about a different solid color user icon for each user. Would be easy to identify each color.

Just a thought.

At that distance, I can't even make out where the focus is. Using username and password is a good workaround, I will look into it.
