Hi,
I've been searching through the forum's tutorials and all through Google to find out how to change the size of the user picture in the login screen. I don't have a password set to my account and I am currently the only one with an account on the computer, so the picture is very small on my 22" 1680*1050 monitor.

Thanks in advance

Yep, you can change the backround image either with logonstudio (see Shawn's link) or you can do it yourself by editing imageres.dll with a resourse editor and change the screen which corresponds to the resolution of your screen.

Thanks for your help, but I already knew how to change the background. I was just wondering if there was a registry setting or a file somewhere that could be modified to change the image size.

Oups, sorry about that.
logonui has been modified under Vista, so there must be somewhere a dll and/or a xml file which specifies the size of it but i never searched :)

I went digging a bit in my system32 folder and was taking a look at authui.dll. I looked through that file and found some UserTile entries in there, but I unfortunately don't know about that very much. I ended up changing some width and height values for some UserTile entries there, but it did not go so nicely and after a restart, it wouldn't load that dll therefore locking me out because there was no login window. Since I was expecting something to go wrong, I was prepared for the worst and everything's fine. If someone has time to go Vista exploring, that would be great so we could figure this out. If interested, I was looking in authui.dll\UIFILE\11000


BTW - Off topic, I've noticed that over the past week my name's been changing colors. I was a Vista Pro user, and now I'm a purplish-pink Power User :p lol. Is that changing because of my reputation? Or is it a rank that admins/mods have given me?

Thanks

Thanks for link Brink, but I'm still a little confused. I only have 290 reputation points and a couple of days ago I was a Vista Pro, but then recently, it was changed to Power User. In that post, it says you reach Power User rank at 400 rep points...
