Being a Mac user for some time now, I have gotten used to how the system works and everything. One part of Mac OS X I don’t really understand is why the background of the login window has to be the default Aqua background. Apparently, it was pretty easy finding a way to customize the login window background. To change the login window background to your liking:
- Open up Finder.
- Go to the folder called Desktop Pictures inside of the Macintosh HD Library folder.
- You should see a file called “Aqua Blue.jpg”.
- This is the default background that shows up in the login window screen.
- Change the name of this file to something like “aqua” to keep as backup if you need to restore later on.
- Then, drag the picture you want to use as the background into the Desktop Pictures folder and rename it “Aqua Blue.jpg”.
- You can also use an image you made, but make sure it matches the screen size.
- Next time you login in you should notice a different background.
