Changing the text shown in first sign-in animation?

Q: Changing the text shown in first sign-in animation?

Hi folks,

I really like the first sign-in animation of Windows 10 ("Hi ....") and I don't want to deactivate it totally.
My forum and google searches did not show me any good results on that since most people just want to switch it off.

So I wonder if anyone figured out already, how to change the text shown in the animation?

Please let me know

Preferred Solution: Changing the text shown in first sign-in animation?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


In IE version:11, When user selects a text and tries to drag it. The selected text appears dark on left hand side and shown as faint text on right hand side.

Im tryin to add an animation to my text in fireworks 8.

I have some text in one color but i want the animation to change it to a different color like flashing.

How do i do it?

A:Animation On Text

I don't have fireworks 8, but the method should be the same as PSP 8 that I use.
You have to have the same number of frames for the animation and the text.
Copy all of the text frames and paste into all of the animation frames.

I just got Pinnacle Movie Box Plus. I heard it's a lot better than Movie Maker. I'm pretty satisfied with most of the stuff but there is one thing I can't seem to do. I can't find anything that will let me do all those nifty title animations that Movie Maker had. Can this be done with Pinnacle or am I gonna have to still use Movie Maker to add cool text?

Hey! So I have been wanting to change my boot/startup logo from the default windows logo with "starting windows" and Microsoft text.

So after many google attempts i have stumbled upon an application, BootUpdater. This program supposedly can easily change the windows animations and is exactly what i am looking for... except when i attempt to run it nothing happens.

No error, not blocked by antivirus, no unresponsive program. Nothing

I have tried running as administrator and then it gave the default admin popup, but after i clicked ok, nothing.

I double click it and absolutely nothing happens.

I have seen tons of videos or post about this application working but it doesnt work for me.

So im wondering if there are any programs out there / anyone who can create one or even fix the old one i attempted to use.

And if not, a guide on how to change the boot animation and text (which is understandable and i can actually do without messing up)

Here is the boot updater website Coder for Life - Windows 7 Boot Updater v11 Alpha Released

I am very frustrated with this and if anyone could help it would be appreciated

A:How di I change boot animation and text?

Was going to suggest compatiblity mode, though looks like it's meant for windows 7 based on askVG. If explorer is closed it may have problems, happens rarely to me but it does happen. Sometimes it's the network framework as well. Weird stuff.

Could try this How To Change Windows 7 Boot Screen Animation - door2windows guy doesn't use deviantart anymore and has a download manager you'll have to go through two sets of 4 screens with mal/bloatware like most software distributors these days. So be prepared to be anoyed but it should work. I haven't updated windows 7 at all, so I do receive framework errors from his stuff here and there. No viruses or anything like that though from the actual program.

An animation like that is usually a (.gif) file.
So if you are looking to replace that animation you most likely want to replace it with a .gif file.

First off I'd like to say hello to all.
The info here is great for customizing many aspects for win 7.

that in mind is why I'm choosing to ask this here.

I'm fully aware of how to change the background of the logon screen however, I'd like to change the little blue ring animation.

I'm familiar with resource hacker and restorator but haven't been able to find where this animation is stored to make the desired change.

any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

just to clarify. I DO NOT mean the boot animation.
I'm looking to change the small animation that displays while logging in/out.... the one that looks like that busy cursor.

Hi everyone,
I noticed few weeks ago that I had problems with dragging the different windows.
For example, I used to catch a window and drag it at the top of my screen, then leave it and it automatically changed the size of the window to it's full size (the whole screen). This used to work both ways (from small to big and vice and versa).
I guessed you know my problem: it doesn't work anymore and it is very annoying. Does anyone knows why?
Thanks a lot.

PS: I already checked the "Performance Options" in the advanced settings..

A:Window's animation while changing size

It is a windows feature called Aero Snap.

To maximize a window Drag the title bar of the window to the top of the screen. The window's outline expands to fill the screen.
Release the window to expand it to fill the entire desktop.
To return the window to its original size, drag the title bar of the window away from the top of the screen.

Source: Maximize windows on the desktop using Snap

Probably it got disabled. Enable it : Aero Snap - Turn On or Off

Has anyone heard of this happening?
I have the trial version of Animation Shop 3.05 and it freezes up and crashes every time I go to use image or text effects. Everything else appears to work.
If I use another program that has some animation, such as Corel Presentations, it doesn't crash. It's only with Animation Shop. What could be causing this?
Or can anyone suggest an alternate program?

When I enter a text into a cell, say "Programming" or a number, say "12.543", Excel shows each one as general instead of a text or number! Why please?

What text or number I need to enter into a cell that Excel shows and treats it as number or text?

A:Text and numbers are shown as General in excel 2010

To set the actual formatting of each cell you need to select from the General drop down menu.
The screen shot below shows where to find this. There are a lot of options here for cell formatting. This screen shot is from Excel 2013, but I think Excel 2010 is the sane.

In an Excel file, all of the cells are formatted to wrap, autofit, and contain an unlimited amount of text. There is quite a bit of verbiage in each cell. For the purpose of this inquiry, let's say there are 20 rows of text within the cell. 9 lines are visible - even if I increase the height of the cell - and the last row shown does not wrap. The person who sent me the file copied text (bulleted) from various Word and Excel documents. At my request, he sent those files to me so I could reformat the text from there before pasting it into the Excel cell that has the problem. Still though, all of the text wraps except for line 9, which extends past the right cell border. What can I do to fix this problem?

Win 7/64. Whenever I read an incoming e-mail, the font size I see is the size shown in the font size window.
However, when I try to compose, forward or reply/reply all, the font that shows up on the screen is so tiny that it barely readable. When I'm replying, even the original e-mail text is tiny. This just started happening the last couple of days.
Any idea of how to fix it??

P.S. Even though my messages go out with tiny text, when I send one to myself, I receive it with normal size text, and nobody I send to has complained that they're getting tiny text.

Hey all, sometimes when I enter the TSG site my text size changes. One minute the text is the size I have it set to and then when I go to a different thread it will get larger. At times if I hit the refresh button it goes back to the right size and sometimes it doesnt. I ran ccleaner but it does not make any difference. I have tried firefox(3.6) in safe mode but no difference there. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this also. It is only the TSG site that this happens on.

Windows 7 64-bit
I can adjust the display so it's large enough to read everything but the text. For instance, now have it set at 150% of normal and the title of this post is large but what I'm typing now is so small it's barely readable. MUCH smaller than 10-point.

There is a way to customize the display, but anything more than 150% is so large it overflows my wide-screen monitor. Surely there must be a choice between way too large and way too small, but I can't find it.

A message on my screen now says to run TSG Sysinfo, for information helpful in solving this problem. Last time I downloaded something similar, here, I ended up with a $40 Uniblue program on my computer that I had to fight like crazy to stop invading my world. I never got my money back, either. It would help to know what "TSG Sysinfo" is, before I commit to running it.

In Microsoft Word 2003 I made a document with text boxes in it. I typed text into the boxes. I then changed the font of that text. When I was done I saved the document. When I opened the document again, the text had changed to another font. I tried deleting the text box, adding a text box again, typing the text in at the correct font to begin with, and saving the document. After I saved, closed, and reopened the document, the font had reverted back to another font again.

I have inherited a lot of song files (PowerPoint) that need updating to fit our situation (We have the Copyright license).

What I want to do is change all the type on all the files to one or two fonts; change the color to white and add shadow.

This is very easy to do "One slide at a time"-- but very tedious. Is there a way to change the whole file at once (or even batch a bunch of them)?

I have PowerPoint and Open Office Impress available to me (In MSWord, I could just "select all" and change the type throughout the whole document-- it seems like it should be possible to do the same in Power Point-- but I am not finding it).

Your insights would be greatly appreciated,

How can the pale grey text displayed on many web pages be changed to black?  It lacks contrast on a less than white background and is hard on the eyes.
Help appreciated,
Thanks, John.

A:Changing webpage text colours in IEx 11

The text colors are controlled by the web pages themselves, where the author has intentionally used pale grey text.

There may be an addon for IE that allows you to locally change the css style sheet to override the font colors. I don't use IE, but I don't think it includes that feature by default.
What I do on pages like that is I press CTRL-A to select all of the text, which sometimes changes the color of the text and the background of the lines to make it easier to read - obviously a very stop-gap solution.

She says it happens in both her browser (Chrome) and her word processor (MS Works). She also is running Google Desktop. I did not see any utitlities or other unusual software. She says it is random but she thinks she might be brushing against the touchpad when it happens. Any guesses what she is doing? (She was going to try to show me but her battery died.)

If the touch pad is setup with a Scroll Zone, pressing CTRL+ScrollZone is same as CTRL+Wheel on the mouse, and will change text size in many applications. If they use keyboard shortcuts a lot like CTRL+C and CTRL+V that might explain it. You can disable the scroll zones in Control Panel | Mouse/Touchpad to see if that stops it.
