    Desktop background gpo

    Hi I have deployed a gpo for the background image of all staff machines. The only problem is that when the laptops leave the network the background goes to black. Is there any way to change this? The background is on the server, how would I overcome this?


    Thanks

    Copy the background to the local computer and change the path on the gpo?

    As chrbb says.

    I'd use Client Side Preferences with your existing GPO to copy the file to the local drive and set the new path.

    But the background location will surely be saved in their local profile so it won't matter...
