  • What does your User Experience Index rate your computer?

    What is the graphics bit depth?

    Did you try right clicking on a photo that you want as background and say "Set as Desktop Backround"?

    Your desktop theme for backgrounds should not indicate solid colors it should be regular patterns

Desktop background doesn't show


I get this too. (Love using the solid blue background)

1. Check if there are any other users logged in on the Mac.
2. Log off all the users including yourself
3. Log in only on your user account and change the background

If that doesn't work, restart first and repeat.

If even that doesn't work, change to another solid background first and then change it back to the picture.
