Display Your Own Logo In Windows 7 Login Screen

If you are an corporate user it is obvious that you wish to have your company logo when windows 7 asks for your login details. And also, when you have issues with people stealing computers.

However thieves sometimes do not steal computers with their company logo on the locked screen/logon screen. It might be because of the branding which seem more professional and they maybe are afraid of being tracked by our company. But remember, computers stolen are always stolen, as when a new operating system is installed, all the user defined settings and logo will be out.

Anyway, take the following steps to replace Logon UI logo.

  • Click Start, type Regedit and press Enter
  • Navigate to


  • Change value of OEMBackground to 1.
  • Now navigate to %windir%\system32\oobe, create folder “info”, double click it and create another new folder “backgrounds”
  • Now place your desired logon file into %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds
  • Rename the file to backgroundDefault.jpg. (Please NOTE: Images must be less than 256kb in size).

That’s it. Thank you.
