Tutorial Overview
A desktop wallpaper policy is a type of network configuration used by network administrators to customize and set the same wallpaper for all office computers. You set a desktop wallpaper policy in the group policy editor, which is included in each server version of the Windows operating system. You can set the wallpaper to an internal Windows wallpaper that comes with the system, or you can use a customized image you distribute to your users.

Setting the Desktop Wallpaper Background with Group Policy is a fairly common request from administration or management. Unfortunately, the actual setup is not as straightforward as you would think. As with any Microsoft product, there are a myriad of ways to configure this and every way has a unique set of features (and drawbacks).

Group policies are hierarchical; they can be applied to domains, workstations, user groups, and/or individual users. All of the various policy elements are then combined into what's known as the effective policy. The effective policy is derived by starting at the domain level and then applying policies on a more individualized basis, working toward the individual workstation's group policy, known as the local security policy.
