Hey guys,

Is there a way, other than creating a default profile, to force everyone to have the same desktop?  I want them to have the same color background and the same logo centered in the middle of their desktop.  I also want them to be able to save to the desktop.

Thanks in advance.

its all configured under the active desktop policies....i had this set up and working in my last job and its fairly simple, only problem i came accross was when the default users profile has been overwritten, then the registry entries didnt get hit by policy, otherwise it was good

Thanks Jay Jay,

Couldn't see where to set the background to yellow, but figured I would just create a wall paper.

Haha Jay,

For a second there I thought you wrote, "That's the game, I would do the same".  Guess I need to lay off the rap music.
