    Hello, All!!

    Is there a setting in the Group Editor where I can set a default Wallpaper for each user that logs in?

    If not, how do I go about making it so that when a user logs in to the computer, the Wallpaper that I created will display? Thanks and I love this SITE!!

    In gpedit.msc, expand User configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop > Active Desktop.
    In there, there is a policy called Active Desktop Wallpaper. Give that a try.

    Thanks, 1ForsakeN!!

    It worked!!

    I went ahead and pointed the "Active Desktop Wallpaper" to the picture that I wanted to use and I enabled "Active Desktop".

    Thanks a bunch!!
