How to change my background


If you want to use the windows7 backgrounds, just "right-click" on your desktop and "left-click" personalize tab. On the bottom part "left-click" an icon with label "Desktop Background", there you can choose your desired background on your desktop.
You can also try "right-click" on a photo or picture, and choose Set as desktop background...
Hope that gives you an idea...

I can't change the wallpaper on my dell inspiron mini 10


I hope I can help!
Now, I believe this particular model comes with Windows 7 installed? If that is the case, changing your background is a little bit different than changing it in Xp, but it should be pretty easy once you know how.
1. One way to do so, is simply find a picture you have saved (such as one under "my pictures"), right click it, and select "set as desktop background"
2. The other way to do this is to right click on your desktop and select "personalize." You can select whole themes from here if you want, but if you just want to change the background, click on "Desktop Background" in the lower left of that menu. You can then select photo locations from which to choose backgrounds either using the "browse" button, or just clicking on "picture location." You can then click on the photos that come up to change your background.
If you need any more assistance, just post a comment!

I hope that helps!

In Windows 7 or Vista, right-click on the desktop and choose (Personalize). Near the bottom of the screen you'll see desktop background and can choose any picture on your computer as a background.

How can change desktop background pls help me.


For Windows Vista or 7 - right click the desktop -> click Personalize and enjoy the custom settings. You can also view any picture online and right click and click "Set as desktop background."

For XP and lower - you just need to right click the background, click properties and click Background (the tab). You can also do what I said about online pictures.

AOL Optimized PC - desktop acting odd


Hi I'm not sure how to change it but I have a suggestion that might work. Here are the steps to try: Go to START then RUN type in msconfig In the next window that pops up, select STARTUP tab Check in there and see if any startup item belongs to aol. Uncheck all those belonging to aol. Click apply, then click Close. It will ask to restart. Click on restart and see if it still happens when it loads up windows again. Good Luck Lolita

Background


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.
