      The second part with customizing the buttons was published by Rafael only 3 days ago. That’s the reason I wrote the article.

      However, I like to be thorough, so I checked W7N for a guide on customizing the background of the login screen (the whole point of changing the button theme was to make it match the background), and it wasn’t there.

      I’m sorry if you didn’t like the fact that I included some older content, but in order to make the guide complete (had no related articles on W7N), I went through the entire process.

      This way the people who have already heard about it get the new content and those who haven’t get both.

    How can this be outdated when Windows 7 hasn’t been launched yet?

    Yes, you might have read this somewhere else but it’ll be impossible for us to always have exclusives. The purpose of this site is to allow readers to have the best single source of Windows 7 News, Tips and Guides and this will always mean that we will cover stories that may have been posted elsewhere.

    For the second part, changing the button set, you never said what to name the DWORD.

    What is it!? This is useful and I haven’t heard of this tweak before.

      I am sorry I forgot. 🙂

      It needs to be named “ButtonSet.”

      I have edited my post to reflect this. Thanks for pointing it out.

    “set the value between 0 and 2” and then you go and put 1, 2, 3 – I take it they’re ordered, still should be fixed.
