You can righ click on the image and choose the "set to background" option that if you are using the windows OS. then go into desktop setting, by right click on the desktop (empty space on the screen) and choose personalize and then desktop background. there will be three option to choose from: option one will fit to screen. this is the option you would want to choose. this is for windows vista. but you should get the idea.

Can I download pictures from my digital camera onto my Dell Latitude d410? If so, how?


You can download from any digital camara.Load the CD that came with the camara or obtain one if you can. You need the interface cable that is purchased seperately. You do not specify the camara spec so you will need to Google the" model and pc interface cable". If you have the cable then the next step is the camara driver which should be on your cd that came with the camara. Plug in the cable to the camara and to the USB port on the PC (make certain the camara is set to the Play position or PC). Windows will ask for the driver location. Insert the cd and continue. If windows does not see the driver you will need to locate it manualy from the cd or on line and download it to your desktop from the manufacturers web site. All camara companies have a support website for the drivers. Once the drivers are loaded then you need to switch the camara to the Play position so it can be seen by the computer. Go to the control panel in windows and select system then hardware then devices. If all went well you should see the camara listed as a device. Now you need the camara software or a picture viewer from the web. Here is the web kocation http://en.kioskea.net/telecharger/telecharger-653-picture-viewer

If all went properly 1. driver 2. picture software then you should be all set to handle your pictures. Good Luck Phil pmgibs1@verizon.net

I am trying to SCAN a photo and save it to my SCREEN SAVER and at the same time enlarge it to fit the entire screen.


The photos in your computer can be used as screen savers (those files that pop up when you are idle).
1. Right click on your desktop and choose personalize.
2. Select Screen Saver
3. Select Photos
4. Click OK

All of the photos in your pictures folder will be your screen saver.

If what you want is this picture to be your background (the file that shows on your desktop all of the time)
1. Right click on your desktop
2. Select personalize
3. Select Desktop Background
4. Change the "Location" to Pictures from its setting of Windows Backgrounds
5. Select a picture
6.Click OK. It is automatically sized to your desktop.
