Surface hub wallpaper

New Contributor

Hi all,


We had a custom OMA-URI setting in place at


This set a background on the SurfaceHub's.


So I thought, when I delete that rule from the custom settings, the default will replace it again. This does not happen. The image set before in the string of ./Vendor/MSFT/SurfaceHub/InBoxApps/Welcome/CurrentBackgroundPath stays in place.


How can I switch back to the default image?

Hello Marco,


This is a known issue and unfortunately the only way you can restore it is by resetting the device. Make sure the MDM policy doesn't apply when rejoining the device to MDM. 


Thank you,
