    Change 'Create Picture Password' UI Background


    Lets face it, Windows has some 'lovely' background images for various applications but some are just too 'dated'!
    This one may be fairly insignificant but you can change it, if you wish, easily using a PNG image of your choice with the help of:

    Resource Hacker

    Default:

    Click image for larger version

    Carefully follow the procedure found here:

    to modify the following resource:

    C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll\PNG folder\5420-1033

    Result example:

    *Follow instructions carefully and always create a Restore Point before performing any tweaks!*

    Hey Edwin,

    That's pretty neat for the default image used for the picture password background.

    If a user uses a picture password, they'll see whatever image they choose for it instead though.
