Removing Desktop Wallpaper for Remote Desktop Connections

I just came across this information (again) and thought I'd share it. There seems to be a number of people looking for information on how to remove the desktop wallpaper on RDP (Remote Desktop) connections. I posted this information a few years ago at QuarkAV.com and Eriq Neale has also posted this on his blog at Simultaneous Pancakes.

Basically, deleting the value in the HKU\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper Registry key will achieve this.

A handy thing to remember. Especially for those OEM installs that set a desktop background that takes a while to download over a remote connection to your server/XP Professional machine.
