    you can edit the Group Policy of the TS, in the user configuration -> administrative templates -> desktop -> active desktop folder you can set the "Active desktop wallpaper" option. You can also stop your users from changing the wallpaper by going to the user configuration -> administrative templates -> Control Panel -> display folder and enabling the "prevent changing wallpaper" option
