I believe you need Enterprise edition of Windows 10

Thank You for your reply. Is there no work around this.


I believe if you are using 1803 the ability to change the desktop backgrounds and lock screen via GPO has been overridden. 


Therefore rendering your GPO useless. 


up to 1709 is OK only 1803 brings this change. 


An update to fix is in the works
