This can be caused by a virus, or it may just be that Windows has got a fault that's stopping the desktop appearing as it should.
(this is just a basic repair, to get you control for now. It may or may not fix the problem permanently as it can be caused by several different things)
If it's just Windows at fault, you can gain control usually by doing this:-
Press CTRL & ALT & DEL at the same time to get the TASK MANAGER box appear. Click on the APPLICATIONS tab. Click NEW TASK. Type EXPLORER.EXE (you don't need to type it in Capitals) Click OK, and a File Explorer box 'should' appear, as well as the usual task bar at the bottom of the screen. In most cases of just Windows getting stuck, this will fix it.
Restart the PC now and see if the problem has been fixed. If it has not, then it's most likely you have a common type of virus removing your desktop. You will need to do the above steps again, and run your antivirus software (i recommend Clamwin, Malwarebytes, and Threatfire for virus removing/detection).

Note that if when showing the background/desktop image, you don't get to see a mouse pointer, this is different, it indicates that your operating system has a more serious problem. If no mouse pointer is visible, try pressing your CAPS LOCK key on and off and see if the keyboard's Caps Lock indicator light goes on & off. If it does not even after a minute, then the PC has crashed completely, and you most likely will need to have somebody restore your operating system.
Good luck :)

Desktop background doesn't show


I get this too. (Love using the solid blue background)

1. Check if there are any other users logged in on the Mac.
2. Log off all the users including yourself
3. Log in only on your user account and change the background

If that doesn't work, restart first and repeat.

If even that doesn't work, change to another solid background first and then change it back to the picture.

Logon Change


Enable Log-On Screen


Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".


In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color


To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".


Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".


Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.


Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".


In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.


In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).


The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.


Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

Our Acer laptop will not show a whole screen of some websites. The monitor is too small. Is there a way we can increase this?


You can increase the screen resolution, however it will make the text and pictures smaller, but more will fit on the page..

Right click the background of your desktop, click personalize, click display settings, and on resolution increase the size one click at a time till it looks how you want it to look..

Or another way is to press control and the minus sign while your logged onto the web page itself your trying to view.

Best settings to photo jewelry upclose for sale on internet


The best setting really depends on the type of pictures you want. Do you want a white background and a completely focused picture or do you want a natural background and more artistic type of picture? The latter is easier to produce as it can be done with a soft hand-held flash and almost any kind of natural lighting conditions and you can put it on a surface according to what you want to get - reflection, colors, shadows and what not. Getting a white background takes more lighting effort and way more Photoshop to cut the item from the background. See the picture of the same rings, different style of photography. best-settings-photo-jewelry-upclose-sale-1g5wszphrhgg2c1q13o1qzmn-4-0.jpg

Desktop icons and start button issue


Hit CTRL-ALT-DEL

Task manager will come up.

Then click File, New Task.

Then type explorer.exe

This will load the things that you're missing. These things are probably missing because you have a virus. Make sure you do a scan.

Kenwood ddx5032 will not upload pictures for background


I finally found a way to change the Background Image on my Kenwood DDX5032.

Firstly I made up some JPEG (.jpg) images in Photoshop and made these 480(pixels wide) x 234 (pixels high). I then put three of these images on to a USB Thumb Drive, made sure my stereo was on "Tuner" (source set to Tuner) and then switched off the ignition. Then I followed these steps:

  1. With ignition off, plug in the USB Thumb Drive,
  2. Turn ignition to accessories,
  3. Pressed the "Setup" button,
  4. Pressed the "User Interface" button,
  5. Pressed the "Memory" button listed under "User Background" (as this was no longer greyed out),
  6. Selected the picture file I wanted to load,
  7. Waited for the picture to upload in to the stereo's memory and the screen to return to the "User Interface",
  8. Pressed the "Change" button under "Background Change",
  9. Selected the picture I wanted and pressed "Enter",

...and voila, it was done. The instruction manual shows additional information if you have multiple folders or files. I hope this works for you as it did for me.

Cheers,
Glenn
