    Anyone knows how to use group policy to force a standard paper on all clients?

    Very much appreciated for any advice.

    Thanks

    Try putting saving this as wallpaper.adm, putting it in a test OU and seeing if it helps you out:

    Code:
    CLASS USER
    Category !!Desktop
        Category !!DesktopWallpaper
     POLICY !!Wallpaper
                KEYNAME "Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop"
         EXPLAIN !!Wallpaper_Help      
         PART !!WALLPAPER_TIP1         TEXT    
         END PART
     
         PART !!WallpaperName          EDITTEXT
                    VALUENAME "Wallpaper"
                END PART
     
                PART !!WALLPAPER_TIP2         TEXT    END PART
                PART !!WALLPAPER_TIP3         TEXT    END PART
                PART !!WALLPAPER_TIP4         TEXT    END PART

             END ITEMLIST

    Could maybe be improved on a little but I never got around to it.
