Detect screen resolution, then change background image RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company is embarking on a Windows 7 enterprise wide rollout. It will be a mix of Virtual Desktops, traditional desktops and laptops.

    Screen resolutions for most users are either 1600x1050, 1280x1024 or 1440x900 depending on the hardware. The deployment & management of Windows 7 has been designed to be as dynamic and zero-touch as possible with a single image.

    Is it possible to detect a particular resolution and use an appropriate background image for that resolution. (similar mechanism to the OEM login background).

    We would only want to run this detection at logon - however if there was also a way to detect when a users changes the resolution, and a change of background could be done with minimal impact to the user experience then we would look at this also.

    Any assistance / pointers would be muchly appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Nathan Currie

  • Hi Nathan,

     

    I suspect this issue should be related to the script, if you would like to check or modify your logon script, please go to Scripting Forum for help.

  • I'm sure you could just include it in the logon scripts that run for a fast easy fix.

  • Hi,

     

    Since this goal cannot be achieved by Windows 7 settings and can be related with the Scripting Forum, I will mark my former reply as answer, in order to direct other communities who encounter the similar issue.

     

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. : )
