I'm having trouble setting the background color to black for PCs within my organization using Group Policy. I realize that Group Policy doesn't allow for this inherently and so I researched other ways to do this. I didn't want to do this through a login script and "tatoo" the registry with the correct entry. I created an adm file to work with Group Policy that I found by another user on here, robbe, and it is here:
KEYNAME "Control Panel\Colors"
PART "!!ChangeBGColor" EDITTEXT
DEFAULT "0 0 0"
END POLICY ; !!ChangeBGColor
END CATEGORY ; Desktop
ChangeBGColor ="Background color"
When I add this to Administrative Templates within a GPO, nothing changes. I then came across a nice program by Desktop Standard, called PolicyMaker Registry Extension which installs into GPMC. When you go to edit the GPO now, it adds a registry section in there which allows you to select the exact registry key and value that you desire. This doesn't work at all either. The standard settings work fine within GPO, but either of these methods I have tried do not work. I have left a question in a forum for the Registry Extension program, but does there exist a simpler solution to this problem? Thank you in advance.
