Dear buddies

I want to deploy desktop wallpaper slideshow (every 10 min change all my client's background) via GPMC.

How can I do this work in my domain.

best regards

    Hi there,

    Yes , it is possible. In Group Policy Management Editor, expand User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Desktop, and then click Desktop. In the details pane, double-click Desktop Wallpaper.

    To enable this setting click Enabled. The wallpaper name should be set to either local path of the image or it can be UNC path.

    Why has no one answered this yet? Agreed, Matthew's response is only for static wallpaper and not the slideshow. I'm looking for a solution for this as well.
