I'm trying to locate the group policy so I can change my desktop background and screensaver, where I work they lock everything down but I know it can be changed in the group policy... I just don't know where or exactly how to change. Oh, running XP

Google is your friend


To resolve this issue, specify an Active Desktop wallpaper setting in Group Policy. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, and then type gpedit.msc.
2. Under Local Computer Policy, expand User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Desktop, and then click Active Desktop.
3. Double-click Active Desktop Wallpaper.
4. On the Setting tab, click Enabled, type the path to the desktop wallpaper that you want to use, and then click OK.

Now to figure out the screen saver

If your domain group policy sets these items, every time you log back in again or if the policy refreshes, it will revert back to that since domain gpo over-rides local gpo settings.
