All you need to do is a mouse right click on your desktop and go to properties, click on the desktop tab and choose whatever you want from background window list. Click apply and ok. Or press the browse button so you can select a picture from your folders.
That's all.

I need help changing my background on my Gateway LT20 Series

Hi there and welcome to Fixya!

I'm guessing you're referring to the Windows desktop background. But if not, please provide additional information.

The Windows desktop background is the image on the desktop that appears behind the shortcuts. To change the background, please follow the steps below:

1. Open the "Display Properties" screen by placing the mouse cursor over a blank area of the desktop. Click the right mouse button to access the context menu and choose "Properties". You can also access the "Display Properties" screen by clicking on Start, select Control Panel, and then Appearances and Themes. Open the "Display" shortcut.

2. Select the "Desktop" tab from the "Display Properties" screen.

3. Pick a picture from the Background list by clicking on it and click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position. Personal pictures in the "My Pictures" folder are listed by name in the Background list.

4. Choose a background picture in another location by clicking on the "Browse" button. You can use any files with the following extensions: .bmp, .dib, .gif, .htm or .jpg. Click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position.

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.
