Set Desktop and Lock Screen wallpaper with Intune in Windows 10

This is a quick blog post to show you can set this fairly easily using Intune. Intune requires you to point to a URL for the wallpaper which at first seems a bit odd, but it actually makes a lot of sense when you have solutions like OneDrive. What am I talking about? Well, find a suitable wallpaper and place it on your Sharepoint OneDrive or Personal OneDrive. Then share the wallpaper and create a public viewing link like so



Next, test the link by pasting the URL into your browser and take a look at the result. It should look something like so

If you are happy with the result move on into Intune, go to Device Configuration and create a Windows 10 Device Restriction Profile where you configure Personalization and Lock Screen Experience where you simply paste the URL like so:



Assign the policy to a sutible group and sync your settings. and Voilà there you go – a perfect result! Smile




Stay tuned for more posts.  Smile

    Hi Marius, thanks for writing this. I followed your guide but instead used my personal OneDrive and Google Drive to create public links to a wallpaper, however, neither option worked. The deployment state only shows “Error”. Any idea what could have gone wrong or where to start troubleshooting?

    Hi Marius, i’m trying to set this up for 5 days already , for some reason idk its not setting up for my groups. Either if it’s setup as a device group or a user group. It shows that my groups are setup to the config policy but doesn’t show any device or user.

    Where can i enroll the devices to run the policy?
