The Windows 7 Logon Background Changer application was designed to be a free open source software that lets you change the wallpaper of the Windows 7 login screen. It has been tested successfully with Windows 7 Final 7600. Its a wonderful windows configuration utility which has a very gorgeous interface.
What does it do?
- It does NOT change any system file, and the program itself does not requires admin rights to run (it will just ask you to run as admin a very simple cmd file that creates the required folder et registry key with the appropriate rights)
- It creates a few JPEG files based on the image you want to put as wallpaper for the Windwos 7 login screen, applies the appropriate cropping and sizing and saves them using the best compression quality possible.
