SP2 changes Desktop-Scheme


Recommended Posts

When installing SP2 the Desktop Scheme is changed. Does anyone know a registry-tweak or other batchable way to apply a specific scheme to all users (windows-classic). I need a solution because of a corporate rollout to 400 desktops !

Thanks !

You can use the '[shell]'-Section in 'winnt.sif/unattend.txt' for this scenario.

Simply add


DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes

DefaultThemesOff = Yes

to the file and that's it. With this two options the start panel und the windows theme are set for all users to 'classic style'.


Have a nice weekend
