How do I turn off the login theme in Windows 7 so it looks like a Windows 2000/XP plain login screen? Like this:

XP Log-in

Windows 2000

  • Do you mean the login picture? The blue one?

You might want to try this tutorial, which is applicable to Windows 7. It shows you how to revert to the classic "CTRL + ALT + DELETE" login.

  • still seems to be themed though :(

  • I think that method is the closest u can get with the new Win6.x operating systems...
