  • Can they manually change the desktop view?

    To specify that clients have Aero theme by default,  create a GPO, navigate to:

    [User Configuration\policies\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization]

    Configure the  “load a specific theme” on the right panel, enabled this policy and type in the path “%windir%\Resources\Themes\aero.theme” without quotes.

  • Consider to involve a Windows Server 2008 or higher server, or edit the policy withing the policy mmc in a Windows 7 client. To do so, in Windows 7 open mmc.exe, add Group Policy snap-in, direct the snap-in to your AD server.
