Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So in a Windows environment, we use bginfo in the all-users startup folder to write out server details to the desktop.

However, different people connect with different resolutions, and we share the account we use to connect with because we lack individual accounts at present. The different resolutions cause bginfo to write its background at a slightly different offset each time, which means the background is garbled over time.

How can we get the desktop background to be reset on logon, so that bginfo writes its new one with a clean slate?

Don't mind if this is a thing we need to add in addition to bginfo, or whether this is built into bginfo but we haven't found the option...?

If you open your .bgi file and choose Desktops... do you have the setting to Update this wallpaper set? I believe it should recreate the new background each time with that setting. –  Nixphoe Jul 7 '11 at 11:03
    
That works - thanks! If you post as an answer, I'll vote it up. –  Peter Mounce Jul 12 '11 at 11:13
