DisplayFusion can't change the wallpaper

Hi, I have a managed Windows 10 work laptop. I can't seem to change the wallpaper either manually or through DisplayFusion. If I go onto the Windows "Background" settings, it says "Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization". How can I override it given that I have local admin access? Or can DisplayFusion overlay a false wallpaper over the default?

Thanks.

If the wallpaper is blocked via a company IT policy, DisplayFusion can't override it, sorry

I have local administrator access now. What do I have to change (in the registry perhaps) to be able to make the wallpaper changeable? Thanks.

There should be a "Wallpaper" value in the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\, deleting or renaming it should work. However, if it's set by a company IT policy, it will get re-created automatically whenever the group policy refreshes (some interval while running, or any time you logout/restart).
