Re: Change the background color of the welcome screen in windows XP

Hi Daley,
I have a solution for you

By default in Windows XP, the background color of the welcome screen is blue. But it can be changed very easily with a value in the registry. However, only three colors are possible.
  • Click on "start", "Run" then type "regedit" and do "OK"

  • Go to the key: "HKEY_USERS. DEFAULT / Software / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion / ThemeManager"

  • In the right part change the DWORD value named "ColorName" and put one of the following:

    • "NormalColor": Blue

    • "Metallic": Gray

    • "Homestead": Olive

say to your friend lolz
