Re: Alternate Vista loading screen...

With Home Basic?! Now hold on a minute, Ultimate users pay that little bit extra, yet we're given the same loading screen as... them?

I wish you got to pick the colour scheme of the loading screen. Blue's okay, but purple would look cool. Mickeysoft, I hope you're listening! Feedback! I'm giving you valuable feedback! And Len wants a better alternate screen!

Re: Alternate Vista loading screen...

I reckon one can find the image file and change it.

Re: Alternate Vista loading screen...

Ooh... now there's an idea... I might look it up tomorrow, if I remember. And I could upload a copy of mine, too, if anyone prefers it.

Re: Alternate Vista loading screen...

It's easily changeable and you can use any image you want as long as you make some basic adjustments to it (which can be done in Paint, I believe, though it's been a good decade since I've started up that gem, lol).

Re: Alternate Vista loading screen...

Are you referring to the boot screen, or the alternate loading screen?

I've never altered my loading screen (other than the tip in this thread), although I've changed my boot and logon pages in the past.


Edit: Oh, actually, I think I might've once changed my loading screen. It had a dragon in it... and it was Win98, I believe... Yeesh! That was years ago.

Re: Alternate Vista loading screen...

I'm referring to the actual boot screen; when you've opted out of the GUI boot-screen, the image you see upon loading windows (and you can also change the loading screen as well, with a dynamic progress bar; but it's much more difficult to do and can cause some issues if done incorrectly).

Et voila! You've now discovered Vista's version of everyone else's window/task switching
That's kind of fun!

Ah, yes, I've done that in the past with XP, and changed my progress bar, too.

But now I quite like Vista's screens, so I think I'll leave it be - unless I can find a nice BMW screen.
