Changing User Pictures
like us who want to customize the logon screen; you can no longer just hack a
system file and replace some resources in it.
The days of customizing every single element on the logon screen are over
until someone writes an application that extends the logon screen or someone
releases a patch that disables the digital signature requirement.
Is this the end of customizing the logon screen? Not at all! You can still make a
lot of useful tweaks to the logon screen to give it a personal touch, such as
changing user pictures, hiding users, customizing the logon screen colors, and more.
Changing User Pictures
Each user set up on your computer can associate an image that appears next
to his or her name on the lock screen, as shown in Figure 5-1. By default, you
have the option to select a picture for your account when you install Windows.
However, the screen that enables you to pick an image offers only a small
selection of the pictures available to you. In addition, if you do not like the images
that Windows has to offer, you can select any image file.
Figure 5-1: The logon screen displays an image next to the user’s name.
