(I use a password but don't need 'Fast User Switching' and also deselect "Use the Welcome screen".) Then, sometimes, i elect to display a picture behind the classic Logon prompt "Log On to Windows" window. ( example: [HKey_Users\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop] "Wallpaper"="Volume\Path\\FileName.bmp" ) The default, and safe, position of the this window is center of the screen. Not that i loiter to long at this prompt, but it has started to occur to me (-aka- bug me) the it would be neater if i could position the 'Logon prompt' window over some free/sky/sea/desert area while fully seeing some interesting person/sunset area. Anything to add to [HKey_Users\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop] or elsewhere to manage this window's position? -- "She wakes him up Forty-eight hours later, the sun is breaking"
