Hi, I am getting a problem regarding changing the wallpaper on my desktop. Please Advice on this.


Windows 7 Starter does not allow you to change the wallpaper. You will need a third party solution such as  Stardock My Colors. This website gives you quite a few options: http://www.instructables.com/id/Windows-7-Starter-Easy-way-to-change-wallpaper/

I m unable 2 change my theme and wallpaper


If your operating system is Windows 7 Starter edition, the customization is disabled. Consider upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium or other edition for these features.
BTW . I found a hack for the wallpaper change in Windows 7 starter edition. if you want to try,
1. Click start and type regedit in the search box or run
2. Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\" folder and click on it
3. On the right hand side you will find a bunch of entries. Find the key named "Wallpaper" and double click on it and put the path of the picture you want as your new wallpaper (example path is "C:\Users\Big Dan\Pictures\new wallpaper.jpg")
4. Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions.
5. Click "Advanced"
6. Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
7. Click on "Advanced" again
8. Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
9. Click "Add"
10. Type "Everyone" and click "OK"
11. Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK"
12. Click "OK" again
13. Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
14. Restart Computer

I want to change the background of my dell inspirion mini 10


I will assume that you are runnung a Windows operating system.

Go to Start then Control Panel.

In XP click on Display Settings and then you will get a dialog box to change theme or wallpaper.
In Windows 7 select Appearance and Personalisation, and you will get similar options.

I don't know Vista, but the process is similar.

My dell inspirion mini is not letting me change my desktop wallpaper, why not??


Hi lexisdee,
probably you got Windows 7 Starter edition pre-installed on the notebook. This version of Windows is restricted and won't let you change wallpapers. Bill wants you to buy the real thing, i.e. Windows 7 home or pro. (I suffer the same fate with my Nokia 3G booklet)
hope this helps.
regards
