Windows 95/98 Startup Screens

Change the blue sky and clouds to stormy skies: These files will replace the Windows 95 logo and the blue sky/cloud background that appear when you start your computer running Windows 95.

Step 1: Download

Choose one of the images below that you would like to use for your startup screen. Download the associated zip file, placing it in your 'root' directory on your hard drive- that is, if your hard drive is C:\, then download the file to c:\ (not to a subdirectory).

Step 2: Install

  • Click on the 'Start' button in Windows 95.
  • Click on 'Run'.
  • Unzip the file by typing in:
    C:\ (or c:\
    *NOTE: You must have an unzip utility (such as PkZip or WinZip) installed on your computer to extract the files.
  • Click on the 'Start' button in Windows 95.
  • Click on 'Run'.
  • Type in:
    C:\scenic.bat (or c:\gates.bat)
  • The program will then replace your old startup screen with the new one.
  • To view your new startup screen, restart your computer.

If you prefer, you can install the new startup screen manually:

  • After unzipping the file: Using Windows explorer, find the file logo.sys in your hard drive's root directory (c:\)
  • Rename logo.sys to logo.bak
  • Rename lghtning.sys to logo.sys
  • Your new startup screen is ready! Restart your computer to view.


If you would like to revert back to the original startup screen, delete the file logo.sys and rename logo.bak to logo.sys.
