Group Policy and enforcing a common wallpaper.

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Fernando Morais, Apr 10, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    this is a bit far from being a SBS problem. Because it's more of
    customization question.
    True is, someone else might have done this and found a soltution.
    The question is, i was asked to define a common wallpaper image.
    I used the Group Policy tool in SBS to define this, using 'User
    Configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop > Active Desktop >
    Âctive Destop Wallpaper' option.The problem i got is that the option
    "Drop shadow for icon labels in desktop" stopped working, and now in
    every computer there i a box of the color of the background around the
    icon lables. And despite i activate/deactivate the "dropshadow" option
    the result is the same.
    So i ask, is there any way to fix this? Or should i do this in other way
    than using that group policy?

    Is there any best practices document, for this time of after
    implementation configurations like Drive mapping, desktop customization,
    and so on?


    Thank you.
    Fernando

  4. Thank you.
    I've found the mistake. The file sent to me was jpg, and Drop Shadow for
    the icons don't work with that. After i changed it to a bmp it started
    working ok.
    To show jpg's on the desktop it works has a active destop element, i
    missed that.

    Thanks.
