    cannot put wallpaper in my pc

    Hi there, if you access the display properties (Right click anywhere on the desktop and choose 'Properties') then goto the 'Desktop' tab and browse through the available wallpapers. When you choose one you like, click once on it so it is previewed in the screen above the list, then choose Apply followed by Ok on the bottom of the window.

    If you wish to put on any custom wallpaper, simply browse for it using the 'Browse' button to find the folder containing the image you want.

    Another direct way to do this is to simply right click on an image you have stored on your PC and choose "Set as desktop background".

    Hope this helps. :)
