    Tried to deploy the registry settings with group policy GPO did not work. I had to add all these additional settings as well.

    Hi, I'm having a small issue with trying to import the UserPreferencesMask with a .reg file. For example, if I have the following .reg file:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Desktop]
    "UserPreferencesMask"=hex:9e,1e,03,80,12,00,00,00
    And I run this, for some reason the key doesn't import over the old one, so my setting to "remove drop shadows" from Windows doesn't get applied. Do you know what's going wrong? Can I do this from within a .reg file?

    Hello John,

    It should have this below in the .reg file instead.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "UserPreferencesMask"=hex:9e,1e,03,80,12,00,00,00

    Wow, I can't believe I didn't realize that. Thank you so much, what a simple mistake.
