    i tried at 1270x720.the wallpaper was squeezed down into the screen but it is distorted.

  • didimeowz Jul 28, 2009

    the wallpaper is an image from my computer.no matter what size of wallpaper i use there is still the same problem. the wallpaper can be set to fullscreen but the wallpaper seems being shifted up about 2cm out of the screen leaving a blank below the screen. everything including the desktop icons is at the correct places except the wallpaper. is it a software problem?

  • didimeowz Jul 28, 2009

    there is no problem with the screen as the desktop icons are all in place. the wallpaper started to shift place when i tried to use a 1280x800 wallpaper this afternoon. previously there was no problem when i used 1024x768 wallpaper. now even if i tried with 1024x768 the problem persists.

    distorted as in pixellated? Is the wallpaper stock windows or an image from your computer?

  • aa1Consult Jul 28, 2009

    check your monitor's documentation to see hoe you adjust the screen, sounds like the vertical could use moved down.

    but if the screen is adjusted to make the wallpaper center appropriately, you can then right click on desktop, and auto adjust them, and they will fall into line

How do I change the wallpaper on my LG Android?


To change the wallpaper on your Android phone, follow the steps below:
1.Tap and hold on the "Home screen" to open the "Add to Home" menu.
2.Select "Wallpapers" and choose the type of wallpaper you want to implement. Three options may be available: Gallery, Live wallpapers, and Wallpapers.
Note: Live Wallpaper may not be an option on some phones. This is due to the limitations of the hardware of the smart phone itself.

Gallery allows you to set one of your own pictures as wallpaper. Tap "Gallery" and select your preferred picture. You can crop the part of the picture you want to use as wallpaper. Then, tap "Save" to set the picture as your background.

Live Wallpapers provides you with a set of animated backgrounds. Tap "Live Wallpapers" and select the live wallpaper you wish to use. Next, tap "Set wallpaper" to set the live wallpaper as your background.

Wallpapers are a collection of pre-installed wallpapers. Tap "Wallpapers" and select the one you prefer. Next, tap "Set wallpaper" to set the picture as your background.

I cant put a wallpaper


As you have not mentioned the Operating System, let me provide the general information.

But, please do not worry, I'll also provide you the alternate options.

In all the Windows Operating Systems, the Desktop Wallpaper can be changed by using the Display Properties option.

The option to change the Wallpaper is only not available with these Operating Systems:

1) Windows Vista Home basic.
2) Windows 7 Home basic.

However, here's the key.

You may change the Desktop Wallpaper by using any third party Applications.

This also applies to the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home Basic Operating Systems.

I have mentioned one such Application below:

You may download the Wallpaper Changer Application from the below link.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.
