i am able to set an active desktop in the GPO policy, but my problem is that the background image i am using is centered in the page, it is our company logo. lets just say the logo is 4in x 4in, the remaining area around the image is a dark blue after the user logs in.

i believe the dark blue is a default blue setting.

is there a way to select a color to use by default? i didn't see that in the GPO settings.

you need to take what you default resolution is on all your monitor, then using an image program such as paint, create a new image, give it the resolution of the monitor then, change the color to what you what it to be, insert your company logo, save it as an image, then us that newly created image as your active desktop or backgroud.

that's what i thought, but what about different monitor resolutions?

i was going to do that originally, but all of the users don't have the same resolution.

go with the largest you have, center your logo and it should look fine on the smaller screens...or you can group you computer by resolution in a OU and create different size backgrounds and apply different GPO's to each ou for different screen resolution

thank you sir, i supposed the smaller resolution monitors would just chop off part of the border, which is ok by me.  why didn't i think of that?

Thanks.
