    Hello lucidgreen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Thank you for the confirmation. The regedit methos is just the manual way of doing the gpedit method. I through it in mostly for reference for those that like to play in the Registry Editor.

    This all works fine for me. I can select an image for use. But then it just does not change the default wallpaper when I restart the computer. I have Windows 8 Pro.

    Hello Sean, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Unfortunately this would only work if your Windows 8 Pro it's joined to a domain that has this policy set in it. Otherwise this will only work locally in Windows 8 Enterprise.

    UPDATE: OPTION ONE can be used now.
