How to change the desktop background image.


There are two ways in which to set your desired image to your desktop background.

Option 1
1) Fistly locate the picture you want as your desktop background.

2) Then double click the image to take you into Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default picture viewer. Once there right click anywhere on the picture and click Set as Desktop Background from the pop up menu.

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2

Then right click on the image and select Set as Desktop Background

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2 is a slightly quicker way of doing it as you don't really need to view the entire image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as long as you can see the thumbnail of it or you are in Filmstrip view.

To enable the thumbnail or filmstrip file view
In the picture folder click on the menu view and then click on the option Thumbnails or Filmstrip from the drop down menu. Or you can find the view icon on your tab menu.

NOTE: Just remember that if your image is in a 4:3 aspect ratio, such as 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, it will be distorted and stretched if you are using as a background on a widescreen monitor.

Older 4:3 monitors (square monitors) use sqarish image resolutions such as 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024.
Newer widescreen monitors use widescreen image resolutions such as 1152x864, 1600x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080.

How do install a windows desktop background.


I assume you wish to set a picture as your Desktop Background, I hope you know it's called wallpaper. There are few options, but the simplest way is open the picture, right-click and select "Set as Desktop Background", the settings will be updated within few seconds. You'll be able to see the new desktop background. If you are using Windows xp, right click anywhere on the desktop (empty area), select "Properties", click "Desktop" tab, there you'll see the available options to select your picture. Click "Browse", locate your picture which you wish to set as background image and select it. Now, click "Open", and make sure "stretch" is selected in the "Position" box, and then click "Apply", then "Ok".. You can also do the same from the "Control Panel's" Display settings, double-click the "Display" icon to access the settings.
In the same way, in windows vista and windows 7, right-click (blank area) on the desktop, select "Properties" and make the changes from the "Desktop Background" options.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

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.
