IMPATIENT GUIDE: CHANGE YOUR LOGON BACKGROUND ON WIN 7
gearHere is an impatient guide for changing the background image on your login screen on Windows 7.Note: The image file you use should be a .jpg file and it should be less than 256 KB.
  1. Press WIN_KEY + R
  2. Type regedit, then hit ENTER
  3. Set or change the DWORD value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Authentication\LogonUI\Background\OEMBackground to 1
  4. Rename your picture file to backgroundDefault.jpg
  5. Copy your picture to %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds directory.  If info\backgrounds doesn't exist you may have to create those directories.  Tip: Press WIN_KEY + R, then enter the above path.  This should open explorer for you.
  6. Log off or reboot your machine to see your new authentication/logon background.
This information is curt and used for personal reference.  Use at your own risk.If this guide is confusing, use a search engine to find a more detailed explanation.  Cheers!
