    Customize Logon/Sign In Screen?


    Has anyone yet figured out how to customize (add an image) to the Windows 8 Logon/Sign In screen? I do not mean the "lock" screen, which I have disabled. I mean the actual logon screen. The plain color background is so boring and ugly. WTF was Microsoft thinking?

    Any and all replies appreciated.

    I'm always tryin to figure out how to manipulate anything but no luck there, (yet)
    On the other hand, you're only lookin at that screen for a few seconds so it's kind of a waste of time.

    Thank you for the welcome! Just got a new laptop with Windows 8 and found the Metro UI stupid and ugly. Doing everything I can to make it look and behave like Win 7. I know the Sign In screen is only there for a short time, but it still BUGS ME! I am hoping somebody will eventually figure out a way to hack that...

Hi, Just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to change the background of the logon screen similar to the way www.julien-manici.com/windows_7_logon_background_changer/ does for Windows 7. I'm guessing there will be one eventually if there is not one now. Thanks

Hi there some public wi-fi services require a sign on (even if free) -- for example in the UK in most Weatherspoon's pubs there is a free wi-fi service -- _the cloud_ I think it's called (the underscores are part of the name).

Customize the lock screen? in Customization
One thing that annoys with Windows 8 is the lock screen. I don't want my monitor to turn of after one minute (or whatever it's set to). I haven't found a setting to change this, so I guess you aren't supposed to change it? Unless I've missed it. It feels like this was designed with only tablets in...
