Group Policy for Windows 8 & 10 Operating System


  • Hi All,

    I have Domain Controller installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 Std. Is all Window 7 Group Policy applicable to Windows 8 and 10 OS also.


    I need to create any Separate policy for Window 8 and 10 Operating System on Window Server 2008 R2 Std.

    Recently, I have changed wallpaper on Group policy but it has not been reflected on Windows OS 10 System.

    What need to be done to resolve this issue? Do i need to migrate my Domain Controller to Window Server 2012 OS to resolve this problem?

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi Param,

    Based on my experience, we could configure group policy to change Windows 10 wallpaper on Windows server 2008.

    You could install RSAT on Windows 10 to manage new feature.

    Here is anrticle below about RSAT may be helpful to you.

    Best Regards,
