We have already released Windows 7 Logon Screen Ease Of Access Button Replacement Tool, which you can use to disable the Ease of Access button on the login screen and replace it with the CMD or Run command or take a screenshot of the login screen. We took it offline and replaced it with the new Ease Of Access Replacer v2, which we are releasing today. With this new tool, another freeware from TWC, you can do all this and more under Windows 8 and Windows 7.
Easy access replacement
Easy to use button provides tools and options such as voice output, magnifier, on-screen keyboard, high contrast, sticky keys and filter keys.
Ease Of Access Replacer v2 (EOAR) is a simple tool that allows you to replace the’Ease of Access’ button on the login screen with several useful options. If you don’t need the Easy Access button, which offers, then replacing it with other useful tools might be an option you might consider.
Freeware replaces the button with the following useful tools :
- Login screenshot: Take a screenshot of the login screen. Connection screenshots are saved in C:Screenshots.
- Lock screenshot: Take a screenshot of the lock screen. Block screenshots The screenshots are saved in C:Screenshots.
- CMD prompt: Opens a prompt.
- Powershell: Opens a Powershell prompt.
- Registry Editor: Opens the Registry Editor.
- Run dialog: Opens the Run dialog box.
- Task Manager: Opens the Task Manager.
Please note that if you want to take a screenshot of the lock screen, wait approximately 1 minute after pressing button until the lock screen is activated and discarded. So far, this is the only safe method I have found, says Lee Whittington, member of the TWC team.
The tool is a stand-alone portable application that does not require installation. To install the’Ease of Access’ button, simply run the’Ease Of Access Replacer’ tool and click’Install’. Although the tool first creates a default system restore point , you can create one manually if you wish, just to be sure. To uninstall, run the tool again and click Uninstall. You may need to run EOAR as an administrator.
With tools such as CMD, Regedit, Task Manager, Run would be great if you realized that you reached the login screen but Windows crashes on the login screen or that for some reason you can’t connect or access certain files. These tools could help you solve such problems. However, access to the CMD could also allow anyone to reset passwords or delete user accounts once they reach the login screen. So it would be a good idea to install it if you are the only user and your machine is physically safe.
Ease Of Access Replacer v2 was developed and tested under Windows 8, 32-bit and 64-bit, but should also run under Windows 10/7.
