These tabs are the only way to change the background or screen saver. The display properties are integrated into the operating system, so, if the tabs are missing, this is an error with the operating system. Start with a system restore. Keep going back until they show on the display properties. If a restore doesn't work, then you will need to do an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

How do i change my pictures to fit my laptop screen


Please give more details on what you are trying to do.

If you want to take a picture and make it the total size of your screen as the background of your screen, then just right click on the picture and select Set as Desktop Background. If the size is not what you want then go into the display properties and select the Desktop tab and change the Position to be Stretch. Stretch will fill the whole screen with the picture. Tile will fill the whole screen with multiple little pictures. Center will put the picture in the middle of the screen.

To get to the display properties click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization.

You can also get the display properties by Right Click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties.

How can I adjust the time between when I use my computer and when the Desktop Background picture comes on?


Hi I am no expert but to me it sounds like you are talking about your screensaver?
If so go to your desktop - right click - Personalize/Properties - Screensaver
From there you can either turn off the screensaver or select a number of minutes before it does come on ;)
Hope this helps :)

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 i set my timer for my screensaver-when my laptop is idle?


The option is under Screen saver options or there is an idle time shut off selection under Power Saver options as well. When you select your screen saver there is are specific options to customize how it shows and how long before it activates. Some screen savers have more options than others.

How to get the acer description to quit automatically coming on while computer is idle?


Hello, maybe it's on your screensaver, so to change or disable your screensaver, move your mouse pointer to a blank part of the desktop.
Right-click the mouse button, and scroll down to 'properties'. Left-click on 'properties'. This opens up 'display properties' . You will see some tabs along the top of this box, select 'Screen Saver' and you will see a screen saver drop-down box. Make a mental note of the current settings and try selecting a different one.Then left-click 'Apply' , then 'OK'

Hello
Right click on the desktop and go to properties.
There should be background tab, screen saver etc.
You should be able to set the settings there.

Otherwise go to control panel and go to the screen savers heading. Hope this can help you.
