Like on the FBA Login Page, can we add" Forgot Password" link in Windows Auth. Page?

How can this be done?


If you web app is claims based then yes you can customize it.

In a Claims-mode web app, the Windows Authentication is handled by /_windows/default.aspx. If we check the path of the virtual folder /_windows, it points to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IDENTITYMODEL\WINDOWS. Obviously, modifying the files in this folder directly is not a good idea. So what I did first is to create another folder, copy all files (default.aspx and web.config) in the above folder to the folder I created, and modify the path of the virtual folder to point to the new folde
