Yup...this is a "feature" of Windows 7 Starter, which is what came with your netbook. It doesn't allow for changing the desktop background.

I have to also point out that this "non-feature" is locked into the End User License Agreement (EULA) which specifically prohibits hacks to change the background. The only "legal" option is to upgrade to Windows 7 Home.

Having said all that, I could not stop you from Googling "How to change Windows 7 Starter wallpaper" and finding several easy hacks (which I am told) work well to allow a change of wallpaper. That, however, is at your own risk etc.

Hope that is helpful.

I just can't change the background of my Acer Aspire One, and I want to know how.


What OS is installed on the Aspire One? If you have Windows 7 Starter, you will need to upgrade to a higher version of Windows 7. The fixed background is a limit of the Starter edition. If you have XP or a higher version of Windows, you should be able to change the background. In the other versions of WIndows 7, right click on the desktop and choose Personalize.

I wish that I had better news.

How do you change the background on a mini acer labtop with the new windows 7


If you have the Windows 7 "Starter Edition" or, on a select few subsidized netbooks (through cellphone carriers), you can not change the background.

Any other version of windows 7 can be changed by:
1) Right-click a blank area on the desktop
2) Select 'personlize' from the menu
3) Select 'Desktop Background' located in the lower left area of the Personalization window.
4) Select your background, hit 'Save changes'
