On some of the bigger dispalys some things might look a little off. What you can try is adjusting your resolution. If you have a graphics card you will ahve a Catalyst Control or similar but even if you do you can access all this through "personalization". Clcik "start", find and click on control panel to open. In your list (tv icon) find personaliztion. right click on and open. There will see a slide bar that you can use to change resolution and you should get a sample version of how it looks and a chance to "apply". If you apply and like your new picture, retsart.

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.

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.

I cant set a photo to my desktop


  1. Find a photo you'd like to use as your computer's wallpaper. (The wallpaper is the background you see on the main screen where your icons are). You can use any photo you have saved or downloaded in your photo folder.

  2. Open your "MY PICTURES" (or wherever you have your photos stored) and find the picture you want to use.
  3. Right click on your chosen photo and then select "Set as Desktop Background" from the pop up menu. This should automatically change your desktop wallpaper to your photo.
  4. Customize the look of the photo by going into your Control Panel and then Appearance & Themes, followed by Change the Desktop Background.
  5. Choose how you want the photo displayed. You can either tile the photo, which means it will repeat the same photo several times. You can Center the photo which will have the photo appear only one time in the center of your screen. You can then also change the border color to compliment your picture. If you select the stretch option it will stretch the photo to cover your entire screen

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Pictures on wallpaper are now stretched with my HP


Depends on whether or not you are using Windows XP or Vista. Either way you need to right click on the desktop anywhere on empty space and go to properties. From there choose the tab that refers to Desktop, then you will have the option of something like "position". There you will want to choose Tiled or Centered, not Stretched which is what you currently have. That will fix the issue.

Stretched desktop warning


You can try to resize your desktop by right clicking the desktop -> personalization->desktop background. On that screen scroll to the bottom where it says :how should picture be positioned" and if it's set to "fill" move it to center and try to see if that stops the error. If not the best solution may be to contact XFX about the issue.

All pictures are stretched as well as web pages can't adjust


Make sure to use the native resolution of your screen in your video settings (desktop-properties-), I believe it is 1600 x 900. Then it should look ok.

Trying to set my background picture and the browse list is lite up but can't scroll and add picture to the customize desktop and only half my screen gets half the picture the rest of the screen is a color....


try playing around with the position options "stretch and the others" and see if that works. make sure you dont have any desktop theme software on your system aswell and if you do, uninstall it.
is it xp or vista?

Oblong pictures


The issue here is that you have a low resolution picture and a high resolution display. Windows is "stretching" the smaller, low resolution picture so that it will fit across the larger area, thus distorting it. Right click on the desktop and select properties. Go to the Desktop tab. There should be an item there for position. Is it set to Stretch? If it is, then this is causing the problem. Set it to center, and it should appear fine. If you want to keep this from happening: 1) User higher resolution pictures. 2) Turn down the resolution on your screen (this can be done from the Settings tab of display properties).
