Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I cannot put my wallpaper on my pc i can put screen save but no wallpaper plzz help me
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. :)

Tips for a great answer:
Enable Log-On Screen
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".
In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.
In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).
The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.
Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

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.
