Hi,

I am trying to set the group policy to disallow changing of start screen from default.

"Prevent changing start menu background"

However when I do so it is no longer the one I chose (I want one that's just a solid colour)

---

How do I change the default to just be a solid colour without the patterns? - as this is the one it defaults to.

Thank you.

Hello Timez,

By default, it should be whatever each user's Start screen is set as before you enabled the policy to disable changing it.

If not, then set the policy back to "Not configured", set each users Start screen how you like using OPTION ONE below, then try enabling the policy again.

Hope this helps, :)
