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
            PART !!WallpaperStyle   DROPDOWNLIST REQUIRED
  VALUENAME "WallpaperStyle"
  ITEMLIST
            NAME !!WallpaperStyle_Center VALUE "0" DEFAULT
      NAME !!WallpaperStyle_Stretch VALUE "2" 
         END ITEMLIST
     END PART
            PART !!WALLPAPER_TIP4         TEXT    END PART
     PART !!WallpaperStyle_Tile    CHECKBOX
  VALUENAME "TileWallpaper"
  VALUEON "1"
  VALUEOFF "0"
  ACTIONLISTON
      VALUENAME "WallpaperStyle" VALUE "0"
  END ACTIONLISTON
     END PART
        END POLICY
 POLICY !!Display_HideBkgnd    
     KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"
         EXPLAIN !!DisplayBkgnd_Help
     VALUENAME "NoDispBackgroundPage"
 END POLICY
    End Category
End Category
[strings]

Display_HideBkgnd="Hide Background tab"
DisplayBkgnd_Help="Removes the Background tab from Display in Control Panel.\n\nThis policy prevents users from using Control Panel to change the pattern and wallpaper on the desktop.\n\nThis setting is the same as found in the original system.adm template.

WallpaperStyle="Wallpaper Style :"
WallpaperStyle_Center="Center"
WallpaperStyle_Tile="Tile Wallpaper"
WallpaperStyle_Stretch="Stretch"
Wallpaper_Tip1="Specifiy location and name"
Wallpaper_Tip2="              Using a local path   C:\Winnt\Logo.bmp"
Wallpaper_Tip3="              Using a UNC path    [URL="file://\\Server\Share\Logo.bmp"]\\Server\Share\Logo.bmp[/URL]"
Wallpaper_Tip4=" "

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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
