Re: Background Again

Ok, instead open 'Paint' on the accessories menu, then go to 'File' then 'Open' and look for your picture, click on it, then click 'Open', then click back on 'File' and click 'Set as background'.

I have lg x140 notebook but cannot change desktop background and wallpaper

Hi babeface1z...

Try these solutions:
Right click on any picture that you want as your laptops background.
A window will open and then you will pick "set as laptop/desktop background.
Now that picture will be your background of your laptop.

Another way is to click Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Change desktop/laptop background>...When the window opens you will click on the tab Desktop, from there you can choose the desktop backgrounds available there, or you can click the browse button and find the picture you want as your desktop background.
Please take time to rate me

I need help changing my background on my Gateway LT20 Series

Hi there and welcome to Fixya!

I'm guessing you're referring to the Windows desktop background. But if not, please provide additional information.

The Windows desktop background is the image on the desktop that appears behind the shortcuts. To change the background, please follow the steps below:

1. Open the "Display Properties" screen by placing the mouse cursor over a blank area of the desktop. Click the right mouse button to access the context menu and choose "Properties". You can also access the "Display Properties" screen by clicking on Start, select Control Panel, and then Appearances and Themes. Open the "Display" shortcut.

2. Select the "Desktop" tab from the "Display Properties" screen.

3. Pick a picture from the Background list by clicking on it and click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position. Personal pictures in the "My Pictures" folder are listed by name in the Background list.

4. Choose a background picture in another location by clicking on the "Browse" button. You can use any files with the following extensions: .bmp, .dib, .gif, .htm or .jpg. Click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position.

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. Let us know if you need any other help and don?t forget to rate the posting.
