Script/GPO for users to select desktop background RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working in an AD environment with 1000's of users.  Management has decided that Windows 7 users will have the ability to choose from one of eight backgrounds when they log in.  These eight backgrounds must be the only choices.  They are not Windows 7 standard but rather custom jpg files. Has anyone dealt with such a scenario?  If so what was the final solution?  BAT file, VBS script?

    Thank you

  • Hi,


    Base on my experience, there’s no such GPO can achieve, only apply single background for one user.


    I suggest to contact GPO forum to verify this:



    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. 


    Thank you for your understanding.
