You can set a wallpaper on both the home screen and lock screen of a supervised iOS device. As mentioned, the device will need to be supervised. Supervision can be implemented via Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP for short), but DEP will require MDM to implement supervision, and with a device enrolled and supervised via MDM, you’ll need to use the MDM to set the wallpaper. You can also use Apple Configurator 2.
To use Apple Configurator 2 to set a wallpaper on a supervised iPhone or iPad, first save the image or images lo call on an iOS device. Once saved to the Apple Configurator machine, open Apple Configurator 2 and plug a device in.
Then right-click on the device, choose the Modify menu and then Wallpapers… from the Modify menu.
When prompted, use the Choose image… button to set the Lock Screen (the screen that is displayed when the device is locked) and the Home Screen (the background behind all your icons on each screen of the iPhone or iPad).
Once you have chosen the appropriate images, click on the Apply button.
You can also set lock screen text from Apple Configurator 2. To do so, use the “Custom Text…” button at the bottom of the screen and enter the text you’d like the lock screen to display when waking a device up (before you enter the passcode on the device). Then click on the Apply button.
The device will install the new wallpaper (note that devices will need to be plugged in and have be unlocked to install these new options). Now the home screen should use the new image as should the lock screen.

A really neat new feature in 2012R2 is that Hyper-V can resize a running virtual machine (.vhdx) to the smallest possible size, while the virtual machine is running. To do so, use Get-VM in PowerShell. Here, we’ll use the -Path option to define the location of our vhdx, the -ToMinimumSize option to indicate that we’d like to shrink it down as low as we can go and -AsJob so it runs in the background:
Resize-VHD –Path D:\myVM.vhdx –ToMinimumSize -AsJob

Once you close Terminal or hit Control-C then you will set the background back to what your initial background was. Hope you enjoy!

DeployStudio has a very nice background image that it uses by default for the NetBoot set. But you can customize the image that’s used if you wish to have something more, well, customized. Simply mount the DeployStudioRuntime sparseimage file from the DeployStudioRuntime nbi file that was created when you elected to generate the NetBoot set. You can do so by simply opening the nib file and then double-clicking on the sparse image. From here, browse into the System and then the Library and then the CoreServices directory in the NetBoot set. From here find the DefaultDesktop.jpg file. Replacing that file will replace the background that is used when you boot to the NetBoot set. The higher resolution the better!

OK, OK, you’re right – if I’m going to cover customizing the loginwindow of Mac OS X then the least I can do is cover Windows as well. Because the registry is basically a bigger, more monolithic version of the defaults domains, we’re going to do pretty much the same stuff at the login screen for Windows. First, open the registry editor (regedit) and browse to HKEY USERS .DEFAULTControl PanelDesktop
