Question about Acer Computers & Internet
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.
