Experts,

I would like to have 1 standard desktop background for all my computers in the domain.

How can I enable this policy in Windows 2012?

This is for server 2008, but it should be the same.

Are you looking for a standard image on the lock screen as well?

Hi yo_bee,

thanks for the link, i don't think I understand the "lock screen".  Is this when a computer "locks" the pc?

If so, I guess it will be useful as well.

Yes it is the wallpaper at the logon screen as well as whe you lock your computer.

Here is the link that will help with deploying and applying the logon screen/ lock screen.
This will all be done using Group Policy Preferences
