Hello,
We have some iMacs at a property in a public area (Library). Guest account is setup for use. I'd like to configure a background and screensaver using certain images for the guest account and not have these settings delete/undo upon guest account logout. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance!

I come from a Windows background, just starting to learn about Macs. There is not a way to edit the default Guest profile (sent background image, screen saver, etc)? Or use scripts at login to make the changes?
Basically need to have the guest account feature of fresh start at each login, but would like to config certain things as default for the guest user. Thx.
