Logon Screen main window
Change your logon screen easily with the aptly titled Logon Screen

Fed up with that boring Windows logon screen? Change it for something better with Logon Screen, a tool that’s so simple it doesn’t bother with a help file. Just download the software, install it and then you can change your logon screen either by double-clicking the desktop shortcut or – better still – by right-clicking the desktop, where you’ll find a new option: Logon Screen.

Selecting this opens a window with your current logon screen shown: just click Browse to select your own replacement – you’ll need to make sure the aspect ratio is correct for your display before choosing it otherwise it’ll appear squashed or elongated. Once done, click Apply: if the file size is greater than 256KB the program will offer to resize it for you – click OK and the job is done.

That’s pretty much all there is – check your new background by clicking the Lock button, or click “Advanced appearance settings…” to make changes to the actual logon process, like displaying a message before the welcome screen appears. These changes can only be previewed by logging off and back on again.

It all adds up to a simple, quick option for switching your logon screen – there’s no help available, and the website is light on detail too, but you should be able to work your way around the program easily enough.

Build 2.55 brings these changes:

-New languages added: Georgian, Japanese and Lithuanian..
-Updated Italian and Vietnamese translations.
-Double click on the picture to browse for a new one.

Verdict:

Simple and quick tool for switching logon screen backgrounds. Shame it’s not compatible with earlier versions of Windows.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
