Right click your deskop and select "Personalize"

The second link down on the list is "Desktop Background". Select it.

From there you should see a variety of desktop backgrounds to choose from. If you have a particular photo that you want to use as your background, then select, "Browse" and find the photo you wanted.

I hope this helps

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.

How to change my background


If you want to use the windows7 backgrounds, just "right-click" on your desktop and "left-click" personalize tab. On the bottom part "left-click" an icon with label "Desktop Background", there you can choose your desired background on your desktop.
You can also try "right-click" on a photo or picture, and choose Set as desktop background...
Hope that gives you an idea...
