How do you change the Login/Bootup/Welcome Screen Background in Windows 7 via the Control Panel? I have changed it to one of the default images before and can't figure out how to get back to that page. I DO NOT want to use my own image, I simply want to use one of the Windows 7 backgrounds.

Thanks!

Go to the Windows personalization panel, change wallpaper. Select ONE wallpaper, right-click, properties. Find the directory it's in, then go to that one. Then use this guide to change it. Note that I've used this myself, and I find that occosionally for some reason it gets reset to the default background (but the file is still in the Windows folder, I just have to go back to the registry editor and change that value from 0 to 1 again).

Do you mean the Welcome screen? Like where it lets you click a username?

Yes, Computerology.

That screen when you shutdown or select a username and login.
