Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC

2 Answers

With multiple windows on the desktop, if I move the cursor off one to the desktop or to the other window, the first one drops into the background. As long as I keep the cursor in the box, it's ok. As soon as I move it away, the box is gone Thanks Walt

Go into the control panel and set your mouse settings differently. You have it set to automatically highlight with mouseover.

Go to Cointrol Panel -> Mouse and check the options on those tabs, especially 'Pointer Options' Some mice have additional options that allow what some call 'Unix emulation' or 'X-Window emulation' where moving the mouse pointer from one window to another changes the focus to whatever window you are over without having to click the mouse button. It sounds like that is what is happening in this case.

How to change wallpaper on HP windows 8


After you click on the desktop app and can see your desktop (don't confuse it with the apps background, you can't change that), right click on it, chose "personalize" then in the window that comes up you'll see "Desktop Background" at the bottom and click it.
From there you can use the "Browse" button on the top to find images you want to use. You can choose multiple images to load and set how often they can change.

I have an acer netbook and occasionally i get a weird symbol when i move my cursor. it's almost like a bullseye. it pauses my cursor until it goes away and then in can continue. what is this?


This is a custom cursor that has been setup by either:

A program on your computer
A custom cursor program like free cursors or something.

Check you computer for programs like "smiley cursors" or check the windows control panel and open Mouse settings to see if you have any custom pointers.

It is possible that.. instead of an hourglass.. somebody, or a program has set a custom pointer for your mouse.

The pointer changes to an hourglass in any windows setup by default when it wants you to wait for something that is happening in the background to finish processing.

Check for spyware and viruses as well.. customer cursor websites are great at getting people to install them and you get infected sometimes.
