Probably your desktop background is locked.
To unlock your desktop do this:

Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Then select tab "Desktop" and go to "Customize Desktop"
Then select tab >> Web >> Uncheck or delete the locked items.

This will be fixing your problem.

How to change wallpaper on HP windows 8


After you click on the desktop app and can see your desktop (don't confuse it with the apps background, you can't change that), right click on it, chose "personalize" then in the window that comes up you'll see "Desktop Background" at the bottom and click it.
From there you can use the "Browse" button on the top to find images you want to use. You can choose multiple images to load and set how often they can change.

How do i change the screen size -resolution on my computer?


Windows 7 Starter edition comes with one desktop background, which can't be changed or customized. Please see this link for details.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Personalize-your-computer

To change the desktop background

  1. Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Desktop Background.

  2. Click the picture or color you want for your desktop background.

    If the picture you want to use is not in the list of desktop background pictures, click the Picture location down arrow to view other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background and appear in the list of desktop backgrounds.

  3. Under How should the picture be positioned, choose to have the picture fit the screen, tile, or be centered on the screen, and then click OK.

If you choose to have a centered picture as your desktop background, you can also have a color background to frame your picture. Under How should the picture be positioned, click Change background color, click a color, and then click OK.
