XP Pro Display Properties Desktop

On my XP when I wanted to change the wallpaper I got up Display Properties then clicked on the Desktop tab. I get an error message to send to Microsoft. Something has changed, I must now log in as a user, in the past I went right to my "normal" screen. Everything else seems to be normal. I run BLINK and did a virus scan, "No malware found". Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Ray

Check Display Properties, Screensaver tab, see if the "on resume, password protect" is checked. You've probably already checked on this, but...

I want to change my desktop background. .what is the easiest and safest site to go to for reat pictures?


Right click your mouse on an empty area of the desktop. A small menu will appear.
  1. Click on Properties [This will be Personalize on Windows Vista or Windows 7] to open the Display Properties screen window.
  2. 3Select the Desktop tab, if using Windows XP. Windows 98 users can select the Background tab.
  3. 4Choose a background. On the lower left half of the Display Properties Window, you will see Background (Win XP) or Wallpaper (Win 98). You can choose a background from the long menu list by clicking on the background/wallpaper design you want.
  4. 5Select a position. Stretch is generally the best choice but if the image you have selected is of a low resolution or an aspect ratio different from your monitor's, then Center or Tile will work best.
  5. 6Click OK to close the Display Properties Window.

My windows display only wallpaper


What happens when you press the windows key at the bottom left of your keyboard?

What happens when you move your mouse to the bottom of the screeen?

If nothing, can you get to the task manager? Press Cttl-Alt-Delete and choose task manager

Under process close explorer.exe
Then under the Applications tab click new task
type in explorer.exe

When booting into Windows press the F8 key and select restore to last known good configuration.

If that does not fix it... then you need to renboot using your Windows XP Installation CD and select repair system

If this has been of help to you please remember to vote kindly.

Cannot put wallpaper in my pc


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. :)
