I have acer aspire one d255e notebook, and i want to change the dekstop background but i cant make, there are no choices that i can change the wallpaper, my operating system is windows 7 starter


Dear user,

Unforetunately you cannot do anything to your desktop background because that is the default feature of Windows 7 Starter Edition.
You have to upgrade at least Home Premium of your Operating System for you to change it .

How can i change the colors of my desktop back to normal. i have a old school desk top the box ones


You should be able to go into display properties and select Windows Classic as the theme.
Right click on Desktop
Select Properties
On Theme tab select Windows Classic and then click apply.

If you have customized the Windows Classic theme and saved as Windows Classic, then you will need to edit the registry to remove those customizations. If this is the case, reply to this solution and I will research and let you know where to make the changes. Beware that incorrectly modifying the registry can cause the system to not boot or have other problems.

Best of luck, Jim

I have windows 7 and do not care for the way it looks. \r\nMy old xp would let me change all the white to a custom color. W7 will not let everything change. I am visually in paired and see things brighter...


Ok - this can be done - step by step...
1. Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance
2. At bottom of that screen: Advanced Appearance Settings.
3. Top selection drop down - find Application Background.
4. Change that to a more agreeable color.
5. Save changes.
6. Enjoy a PC that you can look out without being blinded by the bright whites.
Cheers.
PS - Tested on my Windows 7 Home Premium.

How can i get this genuine microsoft logo on my


This logo appears when the Microsoft OS installed on your computer has not been properly activated with a product key. This prevents Microsoft XP and Vista from installing Windows Updates like security patches and upgrades to Windows software.

You can find out more about the Windows Genuine Advantage program here. http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ProgramInfo.aspx?displaylang=en&sGuid=351e32a4-5bee-4142-9d83-67cfbb4c521d

If you think you have a valid copy of XP or Vista installed, call Microsoft tech support. Be prepared to provide the license key. If you PC was purchased as a package deal with XP or Vista installed, the key will be on a sticker on the side or back of your PC. If you XP or Vista was installed after purchase, the license key is stickered to the packaging the OS came in.

How do I get the Acer desktop?


Hi lydaloudon. Depending on which operating system you have, there are a couple of different ways to accomplish this. I will list the steps for both Windows XP and Vista.
WINDOWS XP: Click START, then click CONTROL PANEL. In the control panel double click DISPLAY. In the DISPLAY PROPERTIES window, click the DESKTOP tab. Under this tab you will see a list of backgrounds. Just choose the one you want and modify it if you wish by changing the color or position, then click OK.

VISTA: Click the Start button down in the bottom left corner (little round Windows button), click CONTROL PANEL. Double click APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION and then DESKTOP BACKGROUND. Double click the background you want and click OK.

Hope this helps!

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.
