It is due to the resolution.... if your picture is a low resolution picture and if it is expanded it becomes blurred.... you should have the higher version of it if you wanna have it clear....

    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.

    I want to change my desktop background. .what is the easiest and safest site to go to for reat pictures?


    Right click your mouse on an empty area of the desktop. A small menu will appear.
    1. Click on Properties [This will be Personalize on Windows Vista or Windows 7] to open the Display Properties screen window.
    2. 3Select the Desktop tab, if using Windows XP. Windows 98 users can select the Background tab.
    3. 4Choose a background. On the lower left half of the Display Properties Window, you will see Background (Win XP) or Wallpaper (Win 98). You can choose a background from the long menu list by clicking on the background/wallpaper design you want.
    4. 5Select a position. Stretch is generally the best choice but if the image you have selected is of a low resolution or an aspect ratio different from your monitor's, then Center or Tile will work best.
    5. 6Click OK to close the Display Properties Window.

    How to change my wallpaper cause mine wont let me for some reason


    ok, listen carefully. i was trying to figure out how to change my background, cuz i have the acer aspire with windows 7 starter, and with starter, you just not allowed 2 change your background, but if you upgrade to anything higher than starter you can change your background. so theres a way to get free windows home primium. whatyou do is go 2 control panel, then go click on "windows anytime upgrade" then click on enter upgrade key. then ente this code below. just copy and paste it.

    RHPQ2-RMFJH-74XYM-BH4JX-XM76F


    after that it will upgrade you from windows 7 starter, to windows home premium. for FREE!!! it will probably take about 10 or 15 mins for it 2 fully upgrade. your laptop will restart like twice. then log on your laptop, and some stuff will pop up, telling you about home premium, just ignore it. then, after that all you gotta do 2 change your background is click on a picture and hit set as background. oh yeah, the first time i set a pic for my background it sorta put it way at the top, if it does that 2 u, just go 2 ur pictures folder n "my computer" and right-click on the picture you want to set your background as, and click "edit" it will then take you to the paint mode, after that click on like the little arrow in the top left corner, then go down to set as background, click the little arrow next to it, and then click the last option in the drop box, it says "center" then.....there you go! you go a like $150 kit. FREE. email if you got any questions or cant figure it out. yuh_girl_kk@yahoo.com

    How do i adjust size of desktop background to fit screen


    If you are using Windows Vista right mouse click on an empty area of the desktop and select personalize. Click on the tab for background and there are options there to fit to screen, stretch image, tile, etc. Select the stretch image and then apply. It will make the image fit your entire desktop. If you are using Windows XP it would basically be the same steps exceot when you right click you would select properties. Hope this helps.
