    Desktop Wallpaper Resets


    Hello, I'm sorry if this has been covered already but I was unable to find a solution.

    I am running multiple Windows 8.1 Pro x64 machines but one has an odd issue. It resets the desktop wallpaper for all accounts after the user logs off. When I log back in I get the solid color that was selected but no image. Any help is appreciated.

    Hello kpoverdorf, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Double check to make sure that you Windows 8.1 Pro is still activated.

    Activate Windows 8 Online

    Activate Windows 8 by Phone

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn
