Shannon,

Right click on the desktop and select properties. On the "Theme" tab, choose Windows XP. On the "Desktop" tab, choose (None), at the top of the list. Press OK.

Does your desktop change? If so, a theme you were using was not compatible with your video. Try another theme.

If that doesn't work, reply to this message and we'll investigate further.

I got a dell desk top computer windows7 an idk password how can i get past it an change it


Hi
You need to get a bootable CD/DVD with appropriate software to clear the password from Windows 7. Suh a CD is the Hiren's one which comes with many other utilities which can be used without going into windows. You can download Hiren's here:
Download Hirens BootCD 15 2 HBCD Fan Discussion Platform
In order to avoid unwanted downloads on this page you need to scroll down nearly to the bottom and click on the link:
Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip
which is in a box with a light green coloured background and which will start the download for you. Be patient it is over 500 Mbytes!!
Its also well worth having a look around the download page as there helpful tips and links on it to understand how to use the disk
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Bold letters


Did you icons get big too? Pressing Ctrl + Mouse Wheel Scroll with make your icons bigger (also Right-Click > View > Large, Medium, Small). Did your resolution change? In Windows 7 and 8, you can check your resolution by right-clicking on the Desktop and select "Personalize". From there, select "Display" located to the lower left of the window. This should show you three options: Smaller, Medium, Larger. Choose the one you like the best. From here you can change your computers Resolution by clicking "Adjust Resolution" and select the one that shows you the most screen that you are able to still read. Most websites are designed to a minimum of 1024 by 768, so I would select at least that.

How do i ghange the screen resolution (size) on my computer?


on the desk top right click go to properties a window will open select: personalise on windows7 (not home starter edition)
  1. Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Desktop Background.

  2. Click the picture or color you want for your desktop background.

    If the picture you want to use is not in the list of desktop background pictures, click the Picture location down arrow to view other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background and appear in the list of desktop backgrounds.
    8456a207-d4c8-401d-8729-c5dda3f0e72c_15.pngLook for pictures in other locations on your computer

  3. Under How should the picture be positioned, choose to have the picture fit the screen, tile, or be centered on the screen, and then click OK.

If you choose to have a centered picture as your desktop background, you can also have a color background to frame your picture. Under How should the picture be positioned, click Change background color, click a color, and then click OK.

Windows 7 Starter edition comes with one desktop background, which can't be changed or customized. Please see this link for details.

Desktop is not showing up. There is a window in place of the desktop.


You may activate your desktop again by right clicking your display, click Properties. When the desktop button shows up, choose a background then apply. If it still doesn't show up, you may need to reinstall your windows software.
