Can't change background on Virtual Desktop (Task View)

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of users online get the option to change background for each virtual desktop inside task view.
In my case, however, I don't get this option and wonder why? This seems to be a native feature now and according to windows update, I have the latest build.

Can someone help me? 
Only have the option to rename - See screenshot:

If you are using the Professional or Enterprise edition of Windows 10, you can disable the option via Local Group Policy Editor.

Step 1: Open Local Group Policy Editor.

1. Press Windows + R to call out the Run dialogue box.
2. Type gpedit.msc on the Run dialogue box and then click the OK button.
Step 2: Navigate to the path: User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization.
Step 3: Locate the Prevent changing desktop background option from the right side of the window and double-click it.
Step 4: Select the Disabled option on the properties window. Then, click Apply and OK to execute and save the changes.
