RDP Splash Screen Wallpaper Removal Instructions

1) Click Start / Run / type REGEDIT and click OK

2) Navigate EXACTLY to the Key Value
- Control Panel
- Desktop

3) Locate the String Value: ”Wallpaper”.

Note: If you’re using a Dell, that string value data is probably “\windows\system32\DELLWALL.BMP”

4) Now, either:
a) right-click and delete the Wallpaper string value completely, or
b) change the value to a different wallpaper

WARNING – Be sure you DO NOT delete the “Desktop” Registry Key on the left, only nuke the “Wallpaper” String Value on the right

5) Close REGEDIT

If you performed everything correctly, the next time you RDP into the server that wallpaper should be gone (or changed if you followed Step 4b). Your Remote Desktop Protocol experience should be much improved now.
