WallpaperStyle

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Data type

Range

Default value

REG_DWORD

0 | 1 | 2

0

Description

Determines whether the appearance of the wallpaper specified in the value of the Wallpaper entry is centered, tiled, or stretched, and prevents users from changing this style.

This entry stores the setting of the Wallpaper Style box in the Active Desktop Wallpaper Group Policy. Group Policy adds this entry to the registry when you enable the policy. If you disable the policy or set it to Not configured, Group Policy deletes this entry from the registry, and users can select their own wallpaper and specify its presentation.

Value

Meaning

(Not in registry)

The policy is not configured. Wallpaper is centered, but users can change the style.

0

Centered.

1

Tiled.

2

Stretched.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Active Desktop Wallpaper Group Policy (User Configuration\AdministrativeTemplates\Desktop\Active Desktop).

Note Image Note

This entry only appears when the Active Desktop Wallpaper policy is enabled.

This entry requires that Active Desktop be enabled. By default, Active Desktop is disabled. To enable it, use the Enable Active Desktop policy (User Configuration\AdministrativeTemplates\Desktop\Active Desktop).

This entry takes precedence over a user setting. When this entry appears in the registry, a policy is in effect and the system ignores the user setting, which is stored in value of the WallpaperStyle entry in the HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop subkey.

For detailed information about particular Group Policy settings, see the Windows 2000 Resource Kit Group Policy Reference.

For general information about Group Policy, see Windows 2000 Server Help or Windows 2000 Professional Help.

To see a table associating policies with their corresponding registry entries, see the Group Policy Registry Table .
