Need help with Changing Wallpaper

  • I need help with a script that will change the wallpaper of a desktop that's not part of a domain. The script will need to reference a local path or a network share if possible for future image changes. I've seen some that claim to change the background instantly, if that's possible great otherwise I understand the machine will need to be restarted.

  • The path to the wallpaper is a registry value, located here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    The key is simply "Wallpaper"

    Change that to the path of your image, and you should be good to go.
