Windows 10 Desktop Wallpaper GPO

Implementing a wallpaper to your desktops within your office using a GPO is super easy and you can actually centralize the wallpaper into a share folder.

Step 1: Create a folder to drop your wallpaper into:

Step 2: Right click the folder and share it out. I added a $ to hide the folder

Step 3: Click on Permissions and make sure the Everyone is set to Read

Step 4: Add or make sure Domain Users is part of the security tab and set it as Read & Execute

Step 5: Create a GPO policy within the Group Policy Managment

Step 6: Right click on the new GPO and click on Edit

Step 7: Go to User Configuration >  Administrative Templates > Desktop > Desktop > “Desktop Wallpaper”

Step 8: Click on Enabled

Step 9: Make sure to use the UNC path for the location of your wallpaper
