Windows XP users get as tired of their boot screens as Windows Vista users do—so if you are a
Windows XP user, this hack is for you. It’ll show you how to easily change your boot screen.
Download, install, and run the free program BootSkin. A screen like the one shown in picture appears.
Scroll to any boot screen and click Preview to see a larger view of it. Once you’ve found one you want to use as your boot screen, click Apply. The next time you boot, you will see your new boot screen. But you are not limited to the boot screens in the program. Click Browse boot screen library, and you will be brought to a page from the WinCustomize BootSkins Gallery that has thousands of boot skins.
Click one you want to download and you will see a larger preview of it. Click the Download button, and
from the screen that appears, click the “Click link to download” link. Then save the boot screen on
your PC. In BootSkin, select File→Import from file, and browse to and select your downloaded boot
screen. You will get a notice that the screen was imported. The new boot screen will now show up in
the program, and you can use it in the same way as you can any other boot screen.
