I would like to customize the windows logon screen to display my company logo. I would also like to be able to set all remote Desktop to display the same background for all the users. Instead of going in user by user and setting the theme can I do this thru GPO? Any help is much appreciated.

Hello,

Here is the location of the policy and the explanation from GP:

[Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\User Accounts] Apply the default user logon picture to all users

This policy setting allows an administrator to standardize the logon pictures for all users on a system to the default user picture. One application for this policy setting is to standardize the logon pictures to a company logo.

Note: The default user picture is stored at %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp. The default guest picture is stored at %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\guest.bmp. If the default pictures do not exist, an empty frame is displayed.

If you enable this policy setting, the default user logon picture will display for all users on the system with no customization allowed.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, users will be able to customize their logon pictures.

You can copy your company logo to paint and save over the user.bmp file with your logo. This will change the logo to your company logo for all users :o)

Thanks
