Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Picture will not appear on desktop
If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
(1) Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.
Ensure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit.
This should help !
(2) If it doesnt, try this:
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:
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.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!

Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Desktop Background.
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.
Look for pictures in other locations on your computer
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.
