    Disabling printing of backgrounds in Word

    Hi All

    I am having problems here with our little darlings using full colour backgrounds in Word documents.

    These are not printed by default but they have learned where to change this.

    Does anyone know if there is a GPO setting that will permanently disable printing of backgounds?

    I don't think you can via the Office adm.

    The only way I know you can do it is through an MST when deploying. Well that's how I did it anyway.

    I guess unless you lock down Tools > Options aswell the little darlings could just enable the setting even if you used a transform.

    I've just had another look into this and there is a setting to disable Backround Printing

    I think it's in the Word11.adm (I've only got the Office11.adm installed hence me saying that it wasn't possible ops: )

    Here's a link to the 2003 SP3 adm files

    Clicky

    If you have a look at the Group POlicies Excel file in this download you'll see the setting on 2295 on the 2nd sheet in the workbook

    Cheers!!

    I have seen this setting but it is not for printing page backgrounds.

    It controls Word printing as a background task...

    Thanks for your replies though...I am going to try writing a vb script to intercept printing and turm off the option...
