I'm guessing you're referring to the Windows desktop background. But if not, please provide additional information.
The Windows desktop background is the image on the desktop that appears behind the shortcuts. To change the background, please follow the steps below:
1. Open the "Display Properties" screen by placing the mouse cursor over a blank area of the desktop. Click the right mouse button to access the context menu and choose "Properties". You can also access the "Display Properties" screen by clicking on Start, select Control Panel, and then Appearances and Themes. Open the "Display" shortcut.
2. Select the "Desktop" tab from the "Display Properties" screen.
3. Pick a picture from the Background list by clicking on it and click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position. Personal pictures in the "My Pictures" folder are listed by name in the Background list.
4. Choose a background picture in another location by clicking on the "Browse" button. You can use any files with the following extensions: .bmp, .dib, .gif, .htm or .jpg. Click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position.
On the Desktop tab, do one or more of the following:
Click a picture in the Background list. In Position, click Center, Tile, or Stretch.
to search for a background picture in other folders or on other drives.
You can use files with the following extensions: .bmp, .gif, .jpg,
.dib, .png, .htm. In Position, click Center, Tile, or Stretch.
Select a color from Desktop color. The color fills the space not used by a picture.
In Microsoft Windows Operating system close all windows and right click your mouse on the desktop. This will pull up a menu that includes an option "Properties" select that option and it will open a dialog that will let you change the background image. Good luck
Right click your mouse on an empty area of the desktop. A small menu will appear.
Click on Properties [This will be Personalize on Windows Vista or Windows 7] to open the Display Properties screen window.
3Select the Desktop tab, if using Windows XP. Windows 98 users can select the Background tab.
4Choose a background. On the lower left half of the Display Properties Window, you will see Background (Win XP) or Wallpaper (Win 98). You can choose a background from the long menu list by clicking on the background/wallpaper design you want.
5Select a position. Stretch
is generally the best choice but if the image you have selected is of a
low resolution or an aspect ratio different from your monitor's, then Center or Tile will work best.
If you are using Windows Vista right mouse click on an empty area of the desktop and select personalize. Click on the tab for background and there are options there to fit to screen, stretch image, tile, etc. Select the stretch image and then apply. It will make the image fit your entire desktop. If you are using Windows XP it would basically be the same steps exceot when you right click you would select properties. Hope this helps.
If you mean that you want to change the image on your desktop, do this:
1. Right click on a place on your desktop with no icons 2. When the menu comes up, click on Properties at the bottom 3. Click on the Desktop tab at the top of the window 4. Click on the Browse button 5. Locate the picture you want for the background 6. Select to Center, Stretch or Tile the image (normally stretch) 7. Click apply and then OK to close the rest of the windows.
I hope that this is what you were looking for. Please let me know how it works out for you.
Hi Adrien, the easiest way to set a picture as a Windows background is to open the picture in your web browser and right click on it. A menu box should appear, about half way down you should see an option labeled *Set as Background*. Left click on that option and Windows will automatically use that picture as you background image and tile it to fill your entire desktop. Alternatively if you have Windows XP and use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer program to display the picture the process is the same except when you right click on the picture the selection will be *Set as Desktop Background*. When you select that option it will do the same thing. If you don?t like the tiled effect right click on the desktop and select properties from the popup menu. In the display properties box that appears click on the Desktop tab, and in the lower right hand corner you will see a field labeled *Position*. Left click on the pull down arrow and select center or stretch, depending on what effect you want.
