How could you add a logo or portrait of dream girl to Windows Vista or Win 7 System Properties?

Well, this is just a little Vista trick that involves editing Windows Registry and preparing a BMP file format in a size measured at 120 x 120 pixel.

Follow these steps to add a logo or portrait to Windows Vista or Win 7 System window:

 

  1. Using your favourite image editor to resize or crop the target image (logo or portrait of your dream girl) to 120 x 120 pixels in size and save it as BMP file format.
  2. Copy or Move the 120x120 pixels BMP file to System32 directory, (e.g. C:\Windows\System32\Logo.bmp)
    (assuming you've saved the BMP file as Logo.bmp)
  3. Open up Windows Registry (i.e. click the Vista Start button, type regedit.exe in the Start Search textbox, click the regedit.exe shortcut listed in the Program list)
  4. Browse to this Registry key path:

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

  1. While at the OEMInformation Registry key, right-click on the right-pane, select New then String Value and name it as logo
  2. Double-click the logo Registry and enter the full path of BMP file in Value Data, i.e. C:\Windows\System32\Logo.BMP

Now, the Windows Vista System window should display the new logo/portrait immediately.

  • If you want to add manufacturer information to Windows Vista System window.
  • Browse to Register key path:

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

  • At the OEMInformation Registry key, right-click on the right-pane, select New then String Value and name it as Manufacturer
  • Double-click the Manfacturer Registry and enter the manufacturer information in Value Data, i.e. IBM, Sony, HP, or Your Name.
