How to change GP 10.0 Homepage??


I found an interesting post at the Newsgroup on how to remove the GP 10.0 home page, definitely the short answer will be it cannot be removed, but if this request is a must, we must workaround it, therefore I wrote this article to modify the home page file and replace its content with single logo that represents the company logo, below sample shows the home page after the modification:


Now to have your home page looks like the above you will need to follow steps below:

1. Locate “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP\Background\HomePage.xsl” and copy it to have a backup of the file.

2. Open the file using Notepad or any available editor.

3. Remove all the code inside the file and place code below instead with changing the image in the code to your company logo.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl=""

<xsl:output method="html" indent="yes" />

<xsl:template match="Page">


<center><img src="D:\My Documents\GPLogo.jpg" alt="Company Logo" title="Logo" /></center>


Refresh your GP home page and enjoy!
