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. :)

Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".


In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color


To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".


Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".


Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.


Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".

Enable Dreamscene


Windows Vista Ultimate has a great feature of putting video as your desktop background. A lot of windows XP and windows Vista (non ultimate) user wanted to do the same. Here is how it can be done using a free and popular software. VLC player.

To set and play a video as wallpaper in Windows XP, Windows Vista Home Premium, Home Basic, Business, Enterprise and Starter edition:
  1. Download and install VLC Player for Windows.
  2. Run VLC Media Player, go to Settings -> Preferences, expand Interface and click on wxWidgets. In the bottom right corner of “wxWidgets interface module” window, click on “Advanced options” to show advanced settings. Then uncheck the Taskbar check box in order to remove VLC Player title from the taskbar while the program is running. Check Systray icon if you want to enable Systray (system tray or notification area) icon instead.
  3. Next, expand Video -> Output Modules and then select Direct X. In bottom right corner of DirectX Video Output window, check the Advanced Options check box in order to see all the settings available. directx-video-output.jpg
  4. Check and tick the “Enable wallpaper mode” check box.
  5. Then, select Playlist and then check or tick the Repeat current item checkbox.
  6. Press “Save” button when done.
  7. Open and play any video that you would like to set as motion wallpaper in VLC Media Player.
  8. If the video hasn’t yet been set as desktop background, right click on the video and click on “Wallpaper”.
  9. The video or movie will be set as if it’s DreamScene motion desktop background wallpaper.
If you do not configure VLC Player to repeatedly play current media in loop, you can still do so after playing the video. Simply click on View then select Playlist. Highlight the video media content that is playing and click on Repeat One or Repeat All button as shown below to loop the video for non-stop video wallpaper.

Note that the video must be encoded in a video format supported by VLC Player such as MPEG, AVI, MP4, WMV, FLV (Flash Video) and etc. Else you will need to convert the video clip to the supported format.

I cant set a photo to my desktop


  1. Find a photo you'd like to use as your computer's wallpaper. (The wallpaper is the background you see on the main screen where your icons are). You can use any photo you have saved or downloaded in your photo folder.

  2. Open your "MY PICTURES" (or wherever you have your photos stored) and find the picture you want to use.
  3. Right click on your chosen photo and then select "Set as Desktop Background" from the pop up menu. This should automatically change your desktop wallpaper to your photo.
  4. Customize the look of the photo by going into your Control Panel and then Appearance & Themes, followed by Change the Desktop Background.
  5. Choose how you want the photo displayed. You can either tile the photo, which means it will repeat the same photo several times. You can Center the photo which will have the photo appear only one time in the center of your screen. You can then also change the border color to compliment your picture. If you select the stretch option it will stretch the photo to cover your entire screen

I can't change wallpaper on windows7 ultimate


If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this :

Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.

viswalp.jpg Ensure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit. This should help ! If it doesnt, try this: Run regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
Reboot.

Extra wallpaper


Have you tried going to control panel>display>desktop and browsing to the wallpaper file you want and selecting it for the desktop setting, then restarting the system?
If that doesn't do it, I suggest you scan your system for malware. Go to this site and follow at least the first 4 steps and scan with MBAM.
This will detect and remove most problems that could compromise the integrity of your system files.
If you're still having the problem after that, write back and let us know when the extra wallpaper appears.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Cannot maintain wallpaper.


1. change your theme to windows classic and then setup your favorite wallpaper.
2. if this fails create a new user account and see if you have the same problem in it too. If no, you can use the new user account and delete the one which you are using currently.
