Shutdown

In Windows '95 how would I change the shutdown screen from saying "It's now safe to shutdown", to "Have a nice day"?

Make a duplicate of the files LOGOS.SYS in a temporary folder. This file is located in your Windows folder.  This file is just a standard bitmap, so rename the extensions of these duplicates to .BMP.
You can use any graphics editor to edit these files, such as MSPaint, Photoshop, or Paint Shop Pro.
The file is a 256-color windows bitmap (RGB-encoded, but not RGB color), 320 x 400.
Since the aspect ratio (width / height) of this file is not standard 4:3, like most computer screens, the bitmap will appear vertically elongated.
To make your new design conform to this aspect ratio, resize the bitmap to 534 x 400 while you're working on it. Make sure to resize it back to 320 x 400 when you're done.
Save your changes, and rename the extension of your new file back to .SYS.
Last, copy the new file back into your Windows folder. It might be smart to back up your original files.

There are two shutdown screen logo.sys and logow.sys.  They are ordinary BMP files and can be edited in paintbrush
