    Internet search is useless.All I can find is programs and videos that claim to change the shutdown screen- but they ALL only do the login screen. I know its possible- I've done it but I can't remember how. Reinstalled windows but my other drive still has a different screen when shutting down- nice naked lady, LOL. I probably seen the tip here but can't find it. Seems like it involved adding a registry key and changing a file in a folder. Help please if anyone knows howo_O

    Thats where the registry key came in....... allows you to add a different screen. I'll keep looking, I probably saved it somewhere.

    Code:
    ; display custom background logon-logoff image (make sure less than 256kb)
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background]
    "OEMBackground"=dword:00000001
    
    ; display custom background logon-logoff image (apply to all themes)
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
    "UseOEMBackground"=dword:00000001
    
    The image should be placed at \windows\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds and named as BACKGROUNDDEFAULT.jpg

    :)

    Nope, sorry..didn't do it. The one I'm looking for adds a different screen for shutting down:( EDIT: My major DUH evidently. Probably was the one that changes both (since normally uses same picture). It didn't occur to me since I have a customized "Starting Windows" screen and I'm the only user. I don't ever see the login screen, just the shutting down.
