Why i cant change my background in my laptop ..?? how can i change it??


There are multiple ways you can do this.

method 1: Exit out of all programs. With mouse on empty desktop, right click. A little white window should come up that will have different options. Click anything along the lines of "Personalize". Continue exploring the options until you reach an area that says "desktop background" or something to that effect. You will have a choice of different backgrounds that come with the computer, usually scenes in nature or graphic designs and so forth. Click "Set" or "apply" or "save" or whatever your option is.

method 2: For a custom background, go to google and search images. Search whatever image you want football team logos, nature scenes, etc. Select your image by clicking. Select "Click to see full size image". Make sure the image is zoomed in all the way. Right click in the center of the image. A window will come up with options. Click "Set image as background". Viola. You have any picture as your background. Make sure you use a large image though, if you care that it covers the whole screen. It may be blurred, if it is not large enough or in high enough resolution. You can do the same process for photos of your own that are downloaded on your computer.

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 .

I tryed to put a picture of my own as my destop picture. i took the advice of someone else and went to properties-desktop-and pick one of my pics, but when i right clicked all i have is graphic properties...


This is a better solution:

1) Go to the picture that you want for your desktop background and double click it. (This should open it in Windows picture and Fax Viewer.
2) Then right click anywhere on the image and select "Set as Desktop Background".
3) Easy as that.

This is an alternative way of doing it:
1) Locate the image you want to use as your background.
2) Without opening it, right click on the picture file.
3) Select "Set as Desktop Background" from the popup menu.

If you are still unclear I have included some pictures to help you.

Here is the first way:
Step 1) Go to the picture that you want for your desktop background and double click it.

Step 2) The image is open with Windows picture and Fax Viewer
