group policy foce windows classic style

By dubplate_acetate ·
hello,

is there a group policy to force theme: windows classic theme on xp pro client pcs?

i have looked through the group policy but i couldnt find it.

i know it is in the local client xp policy, gpedit.msc, but i dont want to have to run to every pc, i want to perform this task at the domain group policy level.

thanks

I don't know about Windows 2000 server but you can achieve this on W2k3 server.

In W2K3 GP - User Configuration - Adminstrative Templates - StartMenu & Taskbar - Force classic StartMenu.

In W2k in the GPO go to: User configuration/windows component/windows explorer
and set enable classic shell.
