Therefore you can also use the Group Policy Preference Registry Extension option to also set the same key to give you some added benefits. Now depending on the registry key that you configure for this setting you can either have this as a restricted (a.k.a.

locked) setting or an unrestricted setting that allows the users to make their own changes.

Here's a guide on doing it For the sake of completeness: To simulate Resultant Set of Policy using Group Policy Modeling Open the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC).

In the console tree, double-click the forest in which you want to create a Group Policy Modeling query, right-click Group Policy Modeling , and then click Group Policy Modeling Wizard .

If you don’t do this you will find that your users will not be able to change their wallpaper even after the policy is removed as the policy registry key will not be removed.

If you chose to use the unrestricted registry key values then also make sure you chose the “Apply once and do not reapply” option.If you don’t do this the users wallpaper will be reset ever time they log off their computer as the key will be set back to the original value during each policy refresh.Now that you know the many options for configuring the Desktop Wallpaper via Group Policy the next thing you should consider is where is the wallpaper being stored.Linked doesn't always mean active and applied: Loopback Processing - it is common for loopback processing to get in the way of a policy applying.Use the GP Modelling or GP Results functionality in GPMC to check this.As you can seen in the screen shots of the administrative template Desktop Wallpaper that they use the example of a UNC path. TIP #5: DONT EVER USE A UNC PATH FOR A DESKTOP WALLPAPER… Simple put using a UNC path puts a lot of stress on network as it has to download file every time the wallpaper is loaded.
