<span>Tips & Warnings</span>
For background pictures, you can use scanned or digital photographs, an image downloaded from <a href="http://www.ehow.com/internet/">the Internet</a>, or perhaps some original artwork that you created in a graphics program. Graphics files suitable for use typically end with extensions of .bmp, .gif, .jpg, or .tif.</li>
Wallpaper consisting of large image files will consume memory and system resources. Consider using a small image and tiling it if resources are scarce.</li></ul><br />
Customizing the picture on your Windows XP desktop, also known as "wallpaper", is an easy way to personalize your computer. You can use a picture of anything you choose; your loved ones, pets, vacation snapshots, Elvis dancing with the Tooth Fairy, the sky is literally the limit!
In order to get started, locate a picture you would like to make your desktop image. Select it, and in the Tasks pane on the left side, choose "Set as Desktop Background".
It's as easy as that!
(Advanced hint: If you'd like to make changes to the picture's orientation, or tiling, or stretching, you can right-click the desktop, and then click Properties. Choose the Desktop tab and you can make adjustments. )

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.
