Change wallpaper on Server 2008 R2 standard?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Anyone know how I can get rid of this monotonous blue background or do I have to live with it as the admin? Or can I make a user profile with admin privileges and do it like that? I'm aware of the policy changes but they don't affect admins they affect users I believe.

I'm pretty positive that you cannot change the background in Windows Server 2008.

You can, I used Win2008R2 as my desktop OS for a while. Follow this guide to do so. It has a lot of other Win2008R2 tweaks on that site as well
