  • Hi,
    As far as I know, you could configure fit option for wallpaper style via registry:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    WallpaperStyle = 10 (Fill), 6 (Fit), 2 (Stretch), 0 (Tile), 0 (Center)
    Please see details from: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askperf/2011/12/13/wallpaper-deployment-troubleshooting/
    In this case, I would suggest you deploy this registry item via group policy:
    Configure a Registry Item https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753092(v=ws.11).aspx

  • Hi,
    User changes the option on the desktop which actually equals changing registry settings
    If you only change the registry on the local client, the behavior is expected, so we suggest you deploy this registry from group policy, in this case, the registry will be controlled by group policy, and user will not be able to change it again.
