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.

  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.

I need help changing my background on my Gateway LT20 Series


Hi there and welcome to Fixya!

I'm guessing you're referring to the Windows desktop background. But if not, please provide additional information.

The Windows desktop background is the image on the desktop that appears behind the shortcuts. To change the background, please follow the steps below:

1. Open the "Display Properties" screen by placing the mouse cursor over a blank area of the desktop. Click the right mouse button to access the context menu and choose "Properties". You can also access the "Display Properties" screen by clicking on Start, select Control Panel, and then Appearances and Themes. Open the "Display" shortcut.

2. Select the "Desktop" tab from the "Display Properties" screen.

3. Pick a picture from the Background list by clicking on it and click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position. Personal pictures in the "My Pictures" folder are listed by name in the Background list.

4. Choose a background picture in another location by clicking on the "Browse" button. You can use any files with the following extensions: .bmp, .dib, .gif, .htm or .jpg. Click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position.

How do install a windows desktop background.


I assume you wish to set a picture as your Desktop Background, I hope you know it's called wallpaper. There are few options, but the simplest way is open the picture, right-click and select "Set as Desktop Background", the settings will be updated within few seconds. You'll be able to see the new desktop background. If you are using Windows xp, right click anywhere on the desktop (empty area), select "Properties", click "Desktop" tab, there you'll see the available options to select your picture. Click "Browse", locate your picture which you wish to set as background image and select it. Now, click "Open", and make sure "stretch" is selected in the "Position" box, and then click "Apply", then "Ok".. You can also do the same from the "Control Panel's" Display settings, double-click the "Display" icon to access the settings.
In the same way, in windows vista and windows 7, right-click (blank area) on the desktop, select "Properties" and make the changes from the "Desktop Background" options.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
