How do I make my own Startup/Shutdown screens in Win95/98?
The process of making Windows Startup/Shutdown screens can be completed in these six steps:
- Open the pictures you want to have as Startup/Shutdown screens in an image editor (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop etc. )
- Resize the images to 320 x 400 pixels.
- Reduce the number of colors to 256.
- Save the pictures as Windows Bitmap (bmp) files.
- Open a file manager and rename the saved files:
Startup screen: logo.sys
First Shutdown Screen: logos.sys
Last Shutdown logow.sys
- Put them into the correct directory (if there already is Startup/Shutdown screens in these directories, take back-ups of these):
logo.sys in your root directory ( C:\ )
logos.sys and logow.sys in your windows directory ( C:\Windows )
