I want to change my Windows logon screen background but the image shows exactly in the middle of the screen. So, I want to change the location of the password box to either side.

Is this possible and can anyone help me to do this?

It's easy. I've managed to not only change the background, but also the positioning of the password field, the removal of the User Picture, and the Windows 7 Branding. I even toyed around with giving the ease of access button an executable string! (Start some program from Login - like CMD!! (Not recommended for shared computers)

You'll need a resource hacker. I'll be in the link I gave.

Have fun!

on first line you say Open authui.dll located in C:\Windows\system32 but that is a binary file. wtf? – Luis Siquot Mar 29 '14 at 14:21
    
Yes. Also it has an icon if you change its extension to .exe O_o – Jet Mar 29 '14 at 15:10
    
authui.dll is a binary file, but not of the executable type that Jet speaks of (exe). It's a (dynamic) library link file. This usually means that the file is a form of software-level database that is used by the operating system, and usually for a specific purpose. In this case, the name does seem to identify its purpose: Authentication User Interface - otherwise known as the login screen :D – MJonthestack Apr 13 '14 at 12:34
