Sign In Screen Color Changer

Some days ago our good friends from IntoWindows covered how to change the logon screen background color. That is simple tweak, but I do not like color scheme number calculation and direct registry editing, so I decide to create a simple tool which allows you:
  • to change color of sign in screen in Windows 8
  • to set the same color for sign in screen and Start screen with one click
  • to get ready-to-use registry tweak with your settings

Last version is 1.1, fixed high DPI issue
And here how it works:

Sign In Color Changer is portable application and does not require to be installed. Sure, it is freeware.

Any chance you can add a quick removal button for the edit? Advanced users will likely know how to safely remove registry edits on their own, but having a removal button built in would be nice for anyone who wants to revert their settings.

Has this been confirmed to work w/ 8.1 RTM? I ask because I've downloaded and run the utility... and it does seem to make the change in regedit... but the color doesn't change. Just curious. Thanks!

Same here with 8.1, doesn't seem to work.

Yeah, I'm wondering too if this program is going to be available for Windows 8.1 users.

You will be surprised, but it was not designed for Windows 8.1.
In Windows 8.1, use Start Screen Color Tuner for Windows 8.1
Lock Screen Customizer

Yeah Man I agree with Serge ... This tool doesn't work with Windows 8.1 Pro!
