Download Windows 8 and 8.1 Login Screen for Windows XP

UPDATE: Windows 8.1 login screen is same as Windows 8.

Many of us are using Windows 8 RTM in our computers. Windows 8 comes with many changes and improvements. Also there are many UI changes and one of these UI changes is the new login screen.

Windows 8 login screen is a little bit different than Windows 7 login screen. It comes with a simple colored background.

If you are still using Windows XP but want to get similar login screen, this topic will definitely help you.

Our friend "PeterRollar" @ DA has created Windows 8 look-like login screen for Windows XP users.

You can download it using following link:

After downloading, extract the RAR file using WinRAR or 7-Zip and you'll get "LogonUI.exe" file. That's the file which contains the login screen. You'll need to replace existing "logonui.exe" file present in "%windir%\System32" folder with this downloaded one. Use "Replacer" to replace the file.

Or you can use Tuneup Utilities to easily apply the login screen which is very safe.

If you don't want to replace system file and don't want to use TuneUp Utilities to apply this login screen, check out following tutorial:
