How to change Welcome/Logon screen background without the use of any other app/software?

Now you can change Welcome/logon screen’s background in Windows 7 and its supported officially. Microsoft has been made a change to customize or ability to load JPG images as background of the welcome/logon screen without using any third party software.

Although the functionality was designed for ease of OEMs to set their own backgrounds to Welcome/logon screen. It can be done by changing few registry settings and you can set your own background.

How to-

  1. Run Registry Editor and navigate to:HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionAuthenticationLogonUIBackground
  2. Now create a DWORD value called OEMBackground and set it to 1
  3. Now copy your image file (JPG file) into %windir%system32oobeinfobackgrounds and rename it tobackgroundDefault.jpg (By default info & backgrounds folders don’t exist, so create them.)

NOTE: Image must be less than 256kb in size.

Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 Arrives in October

Microsoft has announced that the long-awaited Office for Mac 2011 will hit U.S. store shelves at the end of October with three versions in 13 languages.

The Mac version of the popular productivity software will make its debut in three flavors: Office for Mac Home and Student 2011, Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 and Office for Mac Academic 2011. Home and Student 2011, which includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Messenger, will retail for $119 for an individual install and $149 for a Family Pack (three installs).

Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 will retail for a higher price: $199 for one install and $279 for two installs. However, it comes with a significant addition: Outlook for Mac, which replaces the less capable Entourage e-mail client. The Academic edition of Office, which includes all of the features of the Home and Business version, will cost $99, but is only available for students, faculty and staff of higher education institutions.

Office for Mac 2011 comes in 13 languages, including two new ones: Polish and Russian. This is on top of the English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish versions, most of which will be released by the end of the year.

Mac users, are you going to get the new version of Office? What features do you want the most? Let us know in the comments.
