And perhaps also windows installer wallpaper ....:dribble:

More ideas:

Add your logo to the System Properties, MCE, Welcome Center

Here is a small tutorial to add your own logo on System Properties, Windows Media Center (@ Right Bottom), Welcome Center (@ Right top)

Tools Needed:

* 256 x 256 resolution Bitmap file with 32-bit color

* 256 x 256 resolution PNG file

* Prepare one XML file

* First copy the following content and save it as OOBE.XML

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

<FirstExperience>

<oobe>

<defaults>

<glass>1</glass>

</defaults>

</oobe>

<useroobe>

<oemLogo xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/oobetasks/v1'>c:\windows\system32\oobe\picture.png</oemLogo>

<oemStrip xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/oobetasks/v1'>

<offerSource>Offers from Microsoft</offerSource>

</oemStrip>

</useroobe>

</FirstExperience>

* Now put your Bitmap and PNG files in C:\Windows\system32\OOBE

* Add OOBE.XML in C:\Windows\system32\OOBE\Info

* Now run the following registry

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation]

"Logo"="C:\\Windows\\System32\\oobe\\picture.bmp"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Start Menu]

"OEMLogoUri"="file://c:\\windows\\system32\\oobe\\picture.png"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winsat\WindowsExperienceIndexOemInfo]

"Logo"="c:\\windows\\system32\\oobe\\picture.bmp"

* That's it. Now restart your PC and you will see.

i found that Internet... :dribble:

Hi Lego :welcome:

I have a problem with this tweaks "Open CMD here" and "Open Elevated CMD here", when right click and select "Open Elevated CMD here" give me an error. (see pic attach). User have a administrator privileges.

I try manually with:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]

@="Open Command Window Here as Administrator"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]

@="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

and no problem.

Regards.
