Editors' Review


The default color scheme for Windows is heavy with blues: button-down, business-approved blue tones persist, even in Windows 7. Many users change their desktop themes and colors regularly, but what about the bland expanse that is the log-on screen? Sure, it's only there until you type in your password, but why should that stop you from customizing its look? Do you really need more of a reason than, "Because I can?" Because you can, with Logon Changer from Advanced PC Media. It's a simple little app that lets you customize the Windows 7 log-on screen by substituting your own image. It's free, too.

Logon Changer opened with our current Windows log-on screen displayed in its main view. Aside from buttons labeled Change Logon Screen, Test, Revert to Default Logon Screen, and About button, there's not much by way of controls in this simple tool. There's no Help file, but there wouldn't be much ground to cover in any case. We clicked Change Logon Screen, browsed to an image, and opened it. Logon Changer displayed our new log-on screen in its window; clicking Test brought up the log-on screen itself for inspection. We had to log on again, but none of our work was lost. Clicking Revert to Default Logon Screen restored the old blue view of the default screen.

We quickly realized that Logon Changer fills the screen with the selected image, whatever its proportions, and that the display looked best when we selected images that closely matched our screen's aspect ratio. When we changed images, the program noted the change and saved the previous images in a backup file. And while it's tempting to use high-resolution images for quality, Logon Changer only accepts images that are 245KB or smaller. However, it will automatically create and use a compatible copy of a large image, if you let it. Our only complaint is that the program doesn't automatically return to the just-accessed folder when we changed images. That's a minor quibble, considering what Logon Changer does.

"Now Works On Windows 8-Great!"

 |  Version: Logon Changer 2.0


This updated version now works on Windows 8 as well as Windows 7 and also works on Windows 10. Easy to use without having to edit the system files.


None at all. Except it does not support Windows Vista. But you can use it on Windows 7 and 8.


This new updated version now works on Windows 8 and of course it also works on Windows 7. As you know on Windows 8 there is no way to change the default logon/start screen in the Windows settings alone. When you select change start screen nothing happens, but Tweaks takes care of this problem and now with this, I can changed my log on screen as well as the second start screen on my Windows 8 where I couldn't before.
This new version also works better on Windows 7 than the old version did. With the old version when I changed my desktop on 7 the log on screen would switch back to default theme but with this new version that no longer happens as this is much improved.
Pity it does not work on Windows Vista but there are other software's for that that do.
I fully recommend this product to all Windows 7 and 8 users.
Andrea Borman.
