Stretch active desktop wallpaper through GPO

  1. Hello

    I already spent several hours to try to find out a solution to our problem,
    but now, I need some help.
    We set the desktop wallpaper of our PCs through a GPO, that works fine when
    the wallpaper is set to "Center". As soon as we set it to "Stretch", the
    wallpaper appears only at the top of the monitor and the user has to refresh
    the background in order for the wallpaper to cover the whole monitor.
    Has anyone an idea ?

    The configuration of the GPO:
    User configuration
    Administrative templates
    Active Desktop
    Enable Active Desktop is "Enabled"
    Active Desktop Wallpaper is Enabled with a wallpaper name
    set to a network share that works with Wallpaper Style set to "Center"...

    Any idea ?

    I have seen this issue can occur if your display resolution is set to
    1024x768 or greater.

    Can you confirm?
