Customize Logon Look-And-Feel

Customization of the Logon Screen is only available for WXP and W2k3 Server. Unfortunately it is not available in newer versions of Windows, because Microsoft has removed the ability to do this.


The examples 1,2 and 3 do use the following bitmap:

Example 3 uses

The images must be BMP files. They can not be, for instance, JPEG or PNG files.

 

Example 1

The Logon Bitmap is full screen. The Text Box settings are relative to the Logon Bitmap. Because the Logon Bitmap is full screen, the Text Box settings are bounded by the Screen.

Example 2


Example 3

The Logon Bitmap is not full screen. The Text Box settings are relative to the Logon Bitmap.
The file "aads_logon_clouds_280x208.bmp" is shown on top of the Winlogon, full screen bitmap "miramar_tower_1024x768.bmp"
