Choose a Fit - Windows 10 Background Personalisation

I have a third party app that updates my background every 25 minuets. That means I cannot use the slideshow setting in personalisation.  

How can I change the default choose a fit setting so that my image is the perfect fit every time it updates? The default choose a fit setting is fill.

I have found some sources suggesting changing it in the edit group policy settings but this doesnt appear to be a feature on windows 10.  

Thank you.

I understand your query related to adjusting the Desktop Background settings on your PC.


Based on my research, when you set a Desktop Background it depends on the resolution of the wallpaper whether it will fit perfectly on the screen. However, as you’re using a third-party software to change wallpapers, the Choose a Fit option will depend on the software.
