Windows 7 - Prevent Users from Changing the Wallpaper

Windows 7 allows admin to activate a feature that prevents users from changing the wallpaper of the computer.



How To Prevent Users from Changing Wallpaper

To restrict users from changing the wallpaper (under your Administrator account), click on Start > Run > type gpedit.msc and press enter.

Next, go to Local Computer Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop.

In the right pane, select Desktop wallpaper and enable it.

Indicate the full path for your custom/default wallpaper. Center and stretch the image as required and press the OK button to validate.

Now, restart your PC to check the results.
