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 Tweaks.com 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.

"It does the job easily and simple."

August 12, 2012  |  By int_revisor

 |  Version: Tweaks.com Logon Changer 1.2

Pros

Program doesn't require installation. I set a personalized 600x450 JPG image as my Windows Logon Wallpaper (which is stretch to full screen). The program also indicates where you can find the old backgrounds archived.

Cons

Well, I didn't try JPG images bigger than 245 KB. Although, the 245 KB limit is imposed by Microsoft.

"Great program, but lacking in file-type support..."

May 24, 2012  |  By Kherr

 |  Version: Tweaks.com Logon Changer 1.2

Pros

Excellent, does what it is supposed to and is completely free, no "try before you buy" marked as free. Legitimately free. Does it in a jiffy, and does not have anything to install.

Cons

Can only load JPG pictures, and they can't be over 245 KB in size, or it has to copy the photo and re-size and whatnot to get it in the proper file size range.

Summary

I definitely recommend this, as it actually works. I can't say much else than that. :3

"Excellent, easy to use and does what is says it will"

January 25, 2012  |  By ElMocoLoco

 |  Version: Tweaks.com Logon Changer 1.2

Pros

GUI driven, let's you test your choice os startup picture, and if the picture you want to use is too large for the startup display (usually too high of a resolution), it makes a lower res version for you and backs up the original. Excellent!

Cons

None so far.
