    E-Safety Desktop Wallpaper

    Hi All,

    I wondered if you could help me. We are currently reviewing our E-Safety policies at school and looking at ideas to inform the students differently. We have come up with the idea of creating different wallpapers for our computer systems that change daily. I just wondered if you have any designs that are available for download or if you know of anywhere we could get some as I am struggling for them at the moment and I am currently lacking in creativity as its Monday.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

    This would all be aimed at primary school by the way.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Andy,
    We do something similar but utilise screensavers and the login box (CC3). I created a couple of screensavers based on SMART from KidSmart and INSAFE. We swap them with other screensaver (xmas, remembrance day etc) via RMMC.
    The login box takes BMP's so simple messages can be changed whenever we need.
    Creating wallpapers based on e-safety sounds like a competition for the children.

    Dont know if this may be of some help. I wrote this a while back for similar reasons. Save this off as a vbs then set this code up to run every half hour as a scheduled task. It looks for a photo YYYY-MM-DD.jpg e.g. 2014-15-05.jpg. Compares it to see if its newer than the old one then copies it over.

    This way one of our assistant heads can make the backgrounds to what they want and cue them up in advance.

    option explicit 
    dim WshShell, fso, srcPath, tgtPath , file, objFileSrc, objFileTgt,strDayOfMonth,strMonth,strYear,todayFile,files,srcDir,folderIdx,tgtfile
    const OVERWRITE = true
    set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") 
    set fso = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject")
    strDayOfMonth = right("0" & day(date()),2)
    strMonth = right("0" & month(date()),2)
    strYear = right (year(date()),4)
    'set filename to look for to YYYY-MM-DD.jpg
    file = strYear & "-" & strMonth & "-" & strDayOfMonth & ".jpg"
    ' msgbox(file)
    'Path to folder locating the backgrounds
    srcPath = "\\fs01\AdminOffice\Office\Desktops\" 
    'Path to shared desktop background
    tgtPath = "\\hebburn\NETLOGON\"
    'Name of shared background image
    tgtfile = "HCPlogo.jpg"
    'search folder in srcPath for files
    set srcDir = fso.GetFolder(srcPath)
    set files = srcDir.Files
    'recursivly go through the directory and check to see if there is a file named after today if so copy it over to background
    For Each folderIdx In files
    '    msgbox(folderIdx.Name)
    	if fso.FileExists(srcPath & file) then
      if not fso.FileExists(tgtPath & file) then
        'target doesn't exist, just copy
        fso.CopyFile srcPath & file, tgtPath & tgtfile
     '   wscript.echo srcPath & file & " copied to " & tgtPath & file
        Set objFileSrc = fso.getFile(srcPath & file)
        Set objFileTgt = fso.getFile(tgtPath & tgtfile)
        'target exists, compare dates
        if objFileSrc.DateLastModified > objFileTgt.DateLastModified then
          fso.CopyFile srcPath & file, tgtPath & tgtfile, OVERWRITE
        '  wscript.echo srcPath & file & " copied over " & tgtPath & file
        '  wscript.echo srcPath & file & " not newer then " & tgtPath & file
        end if
      end if
    '  wscript.echo srcPath & file & " does not exist"
    end if
    set fso = Nothing
    Here is an example of one of our old ones with a thought for the week on
