Free login changer for Windows

I found something a while back that I wanted to share here, basically, it’s a program that let’s you set a custom background for your Windows login screen. It was coded by the people at and doesn’t require an installation to use, meaning you’ll just need to run it. Start off by going here and select the link “Click here to download from”, of course, you can go here for a direct download. Don’t download it from as I hear it doesn’t work for some reason. Select “Change logon screen” and browse to the image you want to display, keep in mind there’s a limit to file size, but the app will create a copy with adjusted settings.

Don’t worry about your old background, it’s automatically backed-up, so you can restore the login screen whenever you feel like it. That’s basically it, enjoy!
