    Enabling Custom Backgrounds (Logon Screen) in Windows 7 without using any software..

    For Windows 7, this setting is intended for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to customize their systems, but there’s nothing stopping you from using it yourself. All you have to do is change a single registry value and put an image file in the correct location.

    This feature is disabled by default, so you’ll have to enable it from the Registry Editor. You can also use the Group Policy Editor if you have a Professional and Ultimate version of Windows – scroll down a bit for the Group Policy Editor method.

    Launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit into the search box in the Start menu and pressing Enter.
    or simply press Windows + R, then type regedit to launch the Registry Editor..

    In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following key:
    You’ll see an DWORD value named OEMBackground. If you don’t see it, right-click in the right pane, point to the New submenu and create a new DWORD value with this name.

    Double-click the OEMBackground value and set its value to 1.
    Note: Selecting a new theme in the Appearance and Personalization window will “unset” this registry value. Selecting a theme will change the value of the key to the value stored in the theme’s .ini file, which is probably 0 – if you change your theme, you’ll have to perform this registry tweak again.

    Changing the setting in Local Group Policy will allow it to persist even when you change your theme, but the Group Policy Editor is only available in Professional editions of Windows.

    If you have access to the Local Group Policy Editor, launch gpedit.msc from the Start menu.
    or again simply Windows + R, then type in gpedit.msc to launch the Local Group Policy Editor.

    Navigate to the following section in the Local Group Policy Editor window:
    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
    You’ll find a setting named “Always use custom login background.” Double-click it and set it to Enabled.

    Setting An Image
    Now after you enable all the tweaks to be able for you to use a custom image on your
    Windows 7, it time for you to set up the image and path where youre going to put it.

    Your image file must be less than 256 KB in size. It’s also a good idea to use an image file that matches the resolution of your monitor, so it won’t look stretched.

    Windows looks for the custom logon screen background image in the following directory:

    By default, the info and backgrounds folders don’t exist. Navigate to the
    C:\Windows\System32\oobe folder and create them yourself by right-clicking inside the folder, pointing to New, and selecting New Folder.
    Copy your desired background image to the backgrounds folder and name it backgroundDefault.jpg.

    The change will take effect immediately – no system reboot required. The first time you log out or lock your screen (try the WinKey-L keyboard shortcut), you’ll see your new background.
