Different desktop backgrounds for different screen resolutions??
I recently designed a new desktop background for all curriculum computers. I created it as 1280x1024 because most of our screens are that size.
However we do have a few classrooms with widescreen monitors.
My question is, how do I set different desktop backgrounds depending on screen resolution? We are using bginfo and a script at the moment.
Any help would be great.

What functional level is your domain operating at? We use a registry key deployed through preferences which points to a network share for the desktop background. We simply update the file on the share which in turn updates all the computers. We also do another preference for altering another reg key on the workstations which sets the background setting to stretch.
You could try the above but the problem is that your wallpaper may look too stretched. Alternatively, you could get two versions of your desktop as you need and then apply two WMI filters to the users. Using the this site you could set one filter for the widescreen and then one for the 4:3 that applies on logon.
The WMI filtering is a great tool to use, I use WMI filtering to work out whether the user needs a 64bit or 32bit shared start menu.
