I Inherited a network at my new job users have change there wallpaper & Backgrounds
If I disable Wallpaper & background using a group policy
-User Configuration
--Administrative Templates
---Control Panel
----Display
Hide Background
Disable Changing Wallpaper
Will this override any existing Wallpaper & background already in place?
And does this also apply to menu appearance settings and mouse pointers

Hi TonyTech7,


If you set up a GPO and it's applied to the user's desktop it will replace whatever there.

A GPO will enforce any changes you make to the user's system.

I think you may have to specify a background, wallpaper etc in the GPO if you want a standard backdrop otherwise it will keep there old one.

I have these settings..
Under Admin Templates > Active desktop > active desktop settings –Enable-(None)
Active desktop >Control panel>screen saver exec-Enable-None
This works but if the user has already changed the settings before I applied this GP it just locks these settings and keeps the old one.
