Is there a way under administrator I can set the same wallpaper for all users without having to log in under each name and change them one at a time. There are about 12 users per local machine and I am in the process of locking the permissions but do not want to have to log in under each user to reset the wallpaper.

This is helpful but how can I go under administrator and change the wallpaper for all users. I am configuring computers at a school and many students have set strange and inappropriate wallpaper. I want to be able to change it to a solid color for all users, and make it so they cannot change it. I dont want to have to long in as each user and re do it. I know how to prevent future changes but need to know if I can change all users wallpaper to a solid colored screen without having to log in as each user.

If you have Active Directory installed, it would be easy to do this with a GPO.

Another possibility if you have any doimain is using a logon script. I did this myself.

Are you in a Domain? Is it NT 4.0, 2000, etc..??

What client software are your client computers running?
