Desktop background wont change

The computer I got was a floor model but was only out for maybe 20min. I think that they somehow locked it. When we change the desktop background we save changes and it goes to what we wanted and all is fine. then within a minute or so it changes back into what they had it as. aany help would be appreciated. Thanks

You could do one of two things;

Create your own user profile operating as the administrator/owner of the computer. It is probably right now set up to however the store employees wanted it.

If that doesn't work for you or you don't know how, turn the computer over to see the bottom of the chassis. You will see a small hole labeled as "reset." Inside of it is a tiny rubber button, use a bobby-pin to push it down with the computer powered on and hold down until the computer shuts off then release. It will restart on it's own.

How to change wallpaper on HP windows 8


After you click on the desktop app and can see your desktop (don't confuse it with the apps background, you can't change that), right click on it, chose "personalize" then in the window that comes up you'll see "Desktop Background" at the bottom and click it.
From there you can use the "Browse" button on the top to find images you want to use. You can choose multiple images to load and set how often they can change.

2 MIN ICON ON WELCOME SCREEN ACER


My dad fixed this problem by changing the background on his computer. I know this sounds like a strange fix, but apparently certain backgrounds just affect the load time and I think that's what this "2 min" icon was representing. His icon has now disappeared.

I have an Acer windows 7 laptop. bt it seems that the wall paper cannot change. i dont know if I cant change it or it cannot be changed. please help. what should I do?


To change the desktop background
  1. Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg and clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type desktop background, and then click Change desktop background.

  2. Click the picture or color that you want to use for your desktop background.

    If the picture you want to use isn't in the list of desktop background pictures, click an item in the Picture location list to see other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture that you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background.

  3. Under Picture position, click the arrow and choose whether to crop the picture to fill the screen, fit the picture to the screen, stretch the picture to fit the screen, tile the picture, or center the picture on the screen, and then click Save changes.

If you choose to have a fitted or centered picture as your desktop background, you can also frame your picture with a color background. Under Picture position, click Fit or Center. Click Change background color, click a color, and then click OK.

I cant change my desktop background


If you're using a computer with Windows 7 Starter edition you cannot change the background because Microsoft has locked that option on that version, you would need to upgrade your Windows 7.

I can't change my desktop background


Probably your desktop background is locked.
To unlock your desktop do this:

Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Then select tab "Desktop" and go to "Customize Desktop"
Then select tab >> Web >> Uncheck or delete the locked items.

This will be fixing your problem.
