Remove remote desktop wallpaper

This policy setting allows you to specify whether desktop wallpaper is displayed to clients when they are connected to a remote server using RDP. You can use this setting to enforce the removal of wallpaper during a Remote Desktop Services session. If you enable this policy setting wallpaper is not displayed in a Remote Desktop Services session. If you disable this policy setting wallpaper is displayed in a Remote Desktop Services session depending on the client configuration. If you do not configure this policy setting Windows Vista displays wallpaper to remote clients connecting through Remote Desktop depending on the client configuration (see the Experience tab in the Remote Desktop Connection options for more information). Servers running Windows Server 2008 do not display wallpaper by default to Remote Desktop Services sessions.
