Configure Windows 10 Accent Color with Intune and PowerShell

Configure Windows 10 Accent Color with Intune and PowerShell

My last two articles showed you how you can set a computers desktop wallpaper and lock screen wallpaper without having Enterprise or Education by using a PowerShell script and Intune. Now I wanted to figure out how to configure the Windows accent color to also match my corporate branding.

Get Color Values

The first thing we need to do is to get the proper registry values for the color we want to use. For this I just set my local computer’s accent color to the color I wanted to apply to my target machines. You only need to do this one time, once you set the color you want and copy the keys you will not have to do it again.

Once you set the proper color, you will want to navigate to the following registry path: HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent

In my example I will use Intune to set the lock screen image of my end user machines to the following image:

First, we need to create a PowerShell script that will do the following:

  • Download the wallpaper
  • Store the wallpaper locally on the target machine
  • Set the lock screen wallpaper

In my example, I want to set my wallpaper as the following image: https://www.thelazyadministrator.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/nicewall.jpg, which will be named wallpaper_LazyAdmin.jpg and stored at … Continue...

By default, there is an Intune device configuration property that can set a devices wallpaper (Profile Type: Device Restrictions > Personalization) BUT this is only applicable on devices running Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education. Luckily, using PowerShell we can download a image from the web, save it locally, and set it as our users wallpapers.

First we need to create our PowerShell script. In PowerShell ISE I created the following script and saved it to my local machine
