Before reading below please make sure you are familiar with registry modifications. It is very important to know what you are doing. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION MIGHT HARM YOUR WINDOWS SYSTEM AND MAY MAKE IT STOP WORKING. USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. A virus, certain spyware, a malformed registry, or other circumstances can transpire making it impossible for you to change the Windows XP desktop wallpaper. When you try to modify the background picture, neither the list of images nor the "Browse" button is clickable. If this happens, you can perform a registry tweak to restore the functionality. Note you must be an Administrator to perform this tip. NOTE: Be careful what you are doing when modifying the registry as you can harm your computer or keep it from booting! Read the disclaimer. 1. Run "Regedit". START / RUN / and type Regedit and click OK 2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\policies 3. If you see a folder (key) "ActiveDesktop" select it. If not, make a new key and label it "ActiveDesktop". 4. If you see "NoChangingWallPaper", double-click the DWORD value and set it to "0". Otherwise, you need to create a new DWORD value of "NoChangingWallPaper" and set it to "0". 5. Try changing your wallpaper. If this fix doesn't solve the problem, you may also need to make the above registry changes at location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies .

My le pan II background color changed to a mixed red - is the display going out?


Sounds like an app changed your wallpaper settings. Try this: go to settings then click display, you will see what wallpaper you have on th list right. Touch wallpaper and choose whatever you want then click set. This may bring everything into focus with the background you need for the correct page. It seems sometimes the LePan changes color but it is actually the wallpaper somehow taking over. Let me know if changing wallpapers works to "right" the situation. I hope this helps

Tip

Changing folder background


do you want to change the folder background?
do the following steps:

1. Open Command Prompt and set folder attribute to "system". Suppose there is a folder "Setup" in "D:\" drive, in which you want to set a wallpaper as background image. So give following command in Command Prompt:
attrib +s D:\Setup
It'll change the attribute to "system ".
2. Now open Notepad and paste following code:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=path_of_the_wallpaper
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
Now change "path_of_the_wallpaper" to the exact path of the wallpaper which you want to set as background. Suppose the wallpaper is stored in "D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg", then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
NOTE: If you copy the wallpaper in the same folder which you are editing, then you can simply put the wallpaper name in the file. e.g. if you copy the "Image1.jpg" file in "Setup" folder, then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
"IconArea_Text" stands for the text color, you can change it to white, yellow, blue, black or any other color. You just need to know the hexa-decimal number of the color and then replace the code in "IconArea_Text" section. A few most used color codes are as follows:
Black - 0x00000000
White - 0x00FFFFFF
Green - 0x0000FF00
Blue - 0x00FF0000
Purple - 0x00C000C0
Red - 0x000000FF
Yellow - 0x0000FFFF
Indigo - 0x00FFFF00
3. Now save the file with name "Desktop.ini" (including quotes) and copy the file in the desired folder which is "Setup" in our example.
4. Thats it. Close the folder and re-open it. Now it should show the wallpaper as background.

Wall paper for windows 7 starter


Hello there,

Its one annoying limitation of Win7 Starter edition.

Download

Once you install Starter Background Changer on your Windows 7 Starter system, you'll find a new Personalize command added to the desktop context menu - the one that pops up when you right click on the screen. Select it, and you'll be able to customize your wallpaper straight away

1. Download the file on the link.
2. If the download doesn't start automatically, check again.
3. Install the file.
4. Look for the Personalize command added.
5. Change your background.

Hopefully this helps.
Thank you for posting..
