LogonStudio Vista walkthrough
Published on June 7, 2007 By Island Dog In Vista Customization

For years LogonStudio has been the easiest and best way to change your default Windows XP logon screens.  Windows Vista has been out for a while now and if you are like me, I have grown quite tired of the default logon.  Well LogonStudio Vista is now available, and it makes the Vista logon screen just as easy to change.

You can use any of the logon screens that are included with LogonStudio Vista, or you can download one of many already available at the LogonStudio library on WinCustomize.  You also have the option to create your own logon screen and share it with the community if you choose. 

Lets take a tour through LogonStudio Vista to show you how simple it is to apply, create, and upload Vista logon screens.

The first thing you will need to do is get LogonStudio Vista. It's a free download from it's website (and the XP version), or if you are a subscriber to Object Desktop then you can download it through Stardock Central.  Once it's installed, start the application and you should be at the configuration screen.

To change your logon screen just select the one you want to use and hit apply.  That's it, you new logon screen will apply.  If you want to revert back to the default one, just select "Windows Vista default" and hit apply again.  If you want to download more logons just hit the "Download" button and it will take you directly to the LogonStudio Vista gallery on WinCustomize.

Creating new logon

Creating a new logon for your own use, or to share with the community is just as easy.  Just click "Create", and choose the browse button to navigate to the image you want to use as a logon, enter the name of the logon and author and press "save".  Your new logon is complete!  Another way is to just drag the image you want into the LogonStudio window, either way it's very easy to do.

If you wish to share your logon with others, then clicking the "Upload" button will take you directly to the upload page for the Logon gallery at WinCustomize.com.  Remember if you share with the community, your work must be your own or have the permission from the original author if you are using someone else's images.

For more information and download links, visit the LogonStudio website.

Excellent, I'd been waiting for this. I agree with the above poster though, functionality similar to logonstudio on XP would be nice. In any case, keep up the good work!
