Hi tierra_romag

You don't mention which Operating System you are running. If you have Windows Vista you should see Personalize at the bottom of the menu options when you right-click on the desktop. If however you have Windows XP then you would right click the desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and you should be able to change your desktop background from there.

It is also possible that your mouse clicks have been reversed to suit a left handed person. If so then left clicking the desktop (or picture) should give you the menu you need.

Does this help?

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 .

Can we really change the wallpaper for acer aspire one D260? If yes, HOW? If no, WHY?

Yes you can. Right click on an empty spot on your desktop. In the flyout window it will say - depending on which operating system you have ie windows vista - "personalize" or graphic properties etc. Click there. If you get the right one ie "personalize" in vista you will see "desktop background" on the list. Click on it. Then you can pick the picture/wallpaper you wish to have on your desktop.

You can also get to the same place by going through CONTROL PANEL and clicking on PERSONALIZE and change it on DESKTOP BACKGROUND there.

To change your netbook's wallpaper, just click on an empty space on your desktop. Right click and choose Properties. Click on Desktop Tab. You will see there BACKGROUND and under it, listed are background photos that you can use. Just choose what you like, click Apply.
Alternately, you can go online and search for a photo you would like to be your background. Just right click on the photo and choose Set as Desktop Background.
