Windows 7 free applications links and how to change your Windows 7 logon screen

Since I’ve gone a few days without posting something about my new favorite operating system, I thought I would pass along a few things I’ve found for Windows 7.  First, and foremost, the wonderful free Windows applications site, The Road To Know Where, has been updated for Windows 7.  There are a ton of links to Microsoft or Microsoft related downloads for Windows XP, Vista and 7.  Go here for the Windows 7 stuff.  You can get to everything else from there.  This site is a bonanza of information and software for Windows.

One of the things I found there is called TweaksLogon.  What this does is give you a mechanism to change the background for the Windows 7 logon screen.  It is pretty simple.  You select a background image and TweakLogon will apply it to your logon screen.  If the image is too big, the application will resize it for you.  You can also revert back to the default Windows 7 logon background.  It is simple, works great and is free.

Another interesting link I found, and it looks like it will work with XP and Vista as well, is something called Wallpaper Generator.  What this does is generate a random gradient wallpaper based on colors you pick.  Pretty slick and free.  Get it here.

Stay tuned for more Windows 7 tips and tricks.
