My work PC has a fixed desktop image which is automatically pulled from the server when I log in. My user account does not have administrative privileges, and desktop image settings have been locked out. The image is hideous (all one shade, low resolution, and stretched to "fit" my widescreen monitor) and I would really like to get rid of it. Can it be done?
Here are some details:
- The image is automatically loaded into a directory on my PC whenever I log in at the beginning of the day, and whenever I lock/unlock the computer (many times per day)
- I have full read & write access to the directory that contains the desktop image
- If I replace the image file and then refresh my desktop (F5) the new image will appear. This is good, but the old image will be back the next time I log in or unlock the computer
Note: I am not interested in doing anything which will compromise the company security system. I just want to change the local desktop image within the restrictions that have been imposed. The fact that I have write access to the image makes me think that it can be done without too much hassle, I just don't know the best way to go about it. Any help is appreciated!
