    changing the "welcome" text


    Hi
    How can I change the welcome text on the login screen (so that instead of welcome, another text would be displayed)? I`ve seen some tutorials around which uses a tool like Resource Hacker, is there a directer way to do it-like changing a registry entry or so...?
    thanks

    I researched it & gave up on it.

    Can't help with the Welcome text but you might like to play with adding a personal message to a screen that appears before the Welcome screen.
    Back up the Registry first.

    Itīs just, that in English the word "welcome" is nicely neutral, itīs for masculine, feminine and for plural. But Im using a windows language in which the word welcome on startup appears in the masculine form and I would like to change it to feminne....

    Hello Sahara,

    I haven't tested this in Windows 8 yet, but it should be the same method to do so.
