Tags: Configuration Login Mac OS X Last response: November 21, 2010 3:41 AM in Mac Os X Share razercultmember1 November 20, 2010 10:14:46 PM I tried to change my login screen picture to a different one but I messed up somehow and now even when i change the picture i want it to be to DefaultDesktop.jpg it wont work even with a restart The file is located in System/Library/CoreServices More about : restore defaultdesktop jpg file roagie November 21, 2010 3:41:51 AM Did you do this with the Terminal or Third party app? I would use a third party program to do this or the library preferences listed bellow, as the area you alluded to is a dangerous place to make a typo. terminal command: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow DesktopPicture "/path to the picture you want to use/" (you will have to enter an admin password at the end) There is another way through terminal using sudo mv but I don't recommend it as a typo in the System/Library/CoreServices area is a bad bad bad thing.
