Some of the Windows 7 Home editions do not have the Personalization feature, and will only allow you to change the desktop background by right clicking on a image and clicking on Set as desktop background.
Try clicking on the desktop and looking for a "Personalize" option. If you do have the Personalization feature, then you can click there and changing the desktop backgrounds should be one of the options within that program.
I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa.

If you are not able to change your windows wallpaper in win 7 , it means you are using Win 7 starter pack or home basic . Sorry to say but the truth is there is no such option in Win 7 Starter Pack or Home Basic to change your wallpaper . But you can use third party software which is very beautiful and works perfectly fine . Click Here to Download

All The Best and hope Wallpaper problem will not annoy you any more

I have acer aspire one d255e notebook, and i want to change the dekstop background but i cant make, there are no choices that i can change the wallpaper, my operating system is windows 7 starter


Dear user,

Unforetunately you cannot do anything to your desktop background because that is the default feature of Windows 7 Starter Edition.
You have to upgrade at least Home Premium of your Operating System for you to change it .

Have Acer Apsire One with Windows 7. Can't change desktop background.


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.

Open up any of your picture folder. Right-click on the picture thumbnail or picture icon that you want to make your desktop background and select "set as desktop background". I hope this will work for you.

Browse to the images that you want to use and check (select) a image, or more than one image to have a desktop slideshow. Select the Picture position for how you want the images displayed, and any desktop slideshow settings if you selected more than one image. (see screenshots below) NOTE: These options are just like the default ones in the other editions of Windows 7 here that are now being allowed by this program by Oceanis for the Windows 7 Starter edition.
5. When done, click on Save changes.

My dell inspirion mini is not letting me change my desktop wallpaper, why not??


Hi lexisdee,
probably you got Windows 7 Starter edition pre-installed on the notebook. This version of Windows is restricted and won't let you change wallpapers. Bill wants you to buy the real thing, i.e. Windows 7 home or pro. (I suffer the same fate with my Nokia 3G booklet)
hope this helps.
regards

I cant put a wallpaper


As you have not mentioned the Operating System, let me provide the general information.

But, please do not worry, I'll also provide you the alternate options.

In all the Windows Operating Systems, the Desktop Wallpaper can be changed by using the Display Properties option.

The option to change the Wallpaper is only not available with these Operating Systems:

1) Windows Vista Home basic.
2) Windows 7 Home basic.

However, here's the key.

You may change the Desktop Wallpaper by using any third party Applications.

This also applies to the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home Basic Operating Systems.

I have mentioned one such Application below:

You may download the Wallpaper Changer Application from the below link.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.
