Windows 8 to have customizable lock screens
« on: April 29, 2011, 01:36:00 pm »


Only three days after Windows 8 build 7955 officially leaked on a private FTP server, and slipped onto public filesharing websites, hackers have uncovered even more windows 8 secrets.
Although this may not be surprising at first, it does go in the right direction for Microsoft to make Windows 8 completely customizable, right down to the last detail.

Alex Reed, aka Xeraxic, has managed to unlock a feature in Windows 8 build 7955 that allows the user to use their desktop wallpaper as their lockscreen.
Combined with the auto-wallpaper in Windows 8, users will hopefully have a unique lockscreen everytime they sit down at their computer.



How to enable the feature in Windows 8 7955 by editing the theme file
found under


Quote/Ask Question
C:\\Windows\\Resources\\Ease of Access Themes\\basic.theme


Change the line that says :

Quote/Ask Question

SetLogonBackground=0

to

SetLogonBackground=1



then reboot your computer and you'll unlock this feature.. :)
