Pupil Desktop Images
Since the summer we have used active desktop in group policy to have a diffrent desktop for each year and staff members.
Its a simple image file that is applied and they cant change it. However im getting inudated with active desktop recovey issues now that wont recover due to a script error also the icons have a diffrent colour background.
I was gonna steer away from active desktop and just use a reg hack or bginfo which would be great.
However when i turn off active desktop, the kids get the option to RC on pictures and set as desktop. So if i leave if on i suspect i will have my IT rooms covered in home drawn bitmaps.
How do other people do it? Am i missing something in GP or the registry or in BGINFO.
Put me out my misery!
We use BgInfo to great effect..
Coupled with the Group Policie to prevent them changing backgrounds
Not a fan of Active Desktop as its more trouble than its worth...
Which GP's do i neet to activate cos as soon as i turn active dektop off in Group Poilicy the kids can change the pictures
I have attached a screenshot of how its configured here
Its under User Config>Admin Templates>Desktop
I then apply the BGInfo scripts via a login script
Hope this helps :)
Indeed, the approved' way of having desktop wallpaper applied via GPO is to disable active desktop (a horrendous idea in the first place).
Gatt do you write anything special into your login script or is just run a standard BGinfo configration file timer 0 etc.
Its ok i found the VBScript on anopther post, however i just ran a test this morning and it works great however users still have the ability to RC on a piccy and change the desktop image!!! What am i missing???
Sorted I had a conflickted GP!!!! GP result sorted it out for me, thanks for ou help tho Gatt
