Download Windows 10 Hidden Secret Login Screen for Windows 7

Recently we told you about a new hidden secret Login Screen present in Windows 10 Technical Preview:

Collection of Windows 10 Hidden Secret Registry Tweaks

This new login screen is under development and that's why its not activated in the current Windows 10 testing build. It might be activated and enabled by default in future Windows 10 builds. Currently we can manually enable this new login screen in Windows 10 using Registry tweaks given in the above mentioned tutorial.

This new login screen features rounded user avatars, buttons (such as power, network and ease of access) at the bottom-right corner of screen, etc.

If you like this new login screen and want to use it in Windows 7, here is a good news for you.

Our DA friend "PeterRollar" has created a Windows 10 look-like login screen for Windows 7 users. This login screen brings Windows 10 style hidden secret login screen to Windows 7 OS.

It can be used in Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1). Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available for download.

If you are ready to test Windows 10 login screen in Windows 7, check out following simple steps:

STEP 1:

First of all download the login screen using following link:

Download Windows 10 Login Screen for Windows 7

STEP 2:

After downloading the file, extract it using 7-Zip or WinRAR software and you'll get following folders inside it:

  • x64 (64-bit) files changeable
  • x64 (64-bit) files default
  • x86 (32-bit) files changeable
  • x86 (32-bit) files default

If you are using Windows 7 32-bit (x86) edition, you'll need to use following 2 folders:

  • x86 (32-bit) files changeable
  • x86 (32-bit) files default

Similarly if you are using Windows 7 64-bit (x64) edition, you'll need to use following 2 folders:

  • x64 (64-bit) files changeable
  • x64 (64-bit) files default

STEP 3:

Now you might be confused between 2 folder names: files changeable and files default.

Actually this login screen has been created in 2 versions:

Files Changeable: In which the user picture will be changed automatically on login screen based on the current user picture. So you can change user picture on login screen by changing your user account picture in Control Panel. But it may cause loss of quality in user picture as it'll be zoomed to fit he user picture area of login screen.

Files Default: In this login screen, the user picture will never change. It'll always remain same irrespective of what user account picture do you select. It has been created to mimic Windows 10 login screen perfectly.

So you can decide which version of login screen do you want to use and then open that folder.

STEP 4:

Inside all 4 folders, you'll find following 2 files:

  • authui.dll
  • basebrd.dll

These 2 files contain required login screen resources. You'll need to replace existing dll files in your Windows with these new dll files.

If you don't know where and how to change these DLL file, please follow the steps given in following tutorial:

  • Hey VG, I get the login screen but it doesn't enlarge my user a/c picture....................Help me, I'm not getting the most of this fabulous art.

  • VG

    ^^ Since its a custom made login screen, you might face such kind of issues. You can try the "Files Default" login screen which will show default Windows 10 user account picture.

  • @Sparsh
    32 or 64 bit?
    Do you have the round account picture?
    It should be 200 pix wide.
    Can you upload a screencap?
    I would really like to help you
