If you want to hide your icons, right click on your desktop(your screen). A window will appear and put your pointer on view. Another window will open and at the bottom you will see "show desktop icons " with a check mark. Click on this and your icons will be hidden. To get them back do it again.

How do I highlight words on notepad?


To highlight text permanently, similar to a highlighter on paper, use WordPad instead of Notepad. Find WordPad by searching on the Start menu or Windows 8 Start screen. In WordPad, first select the text you want to highlight, and then open the drop-down menu next to the highlighter icon, located near the font settings. Pick a color to highlight the text. After setting the color, merely click the highlighter icon to highlight selected text with the same color. Word 2007, 2010 and 2013 offer an identical feature, used in the same manner. Word also includes the option to click the highlighter icon first and then select text to highlight

Tip

Changing folder background


do you want to change the folder background?
do the following steps:

1. Open Command Prompt and set folder attribute to "system". Suppose there is a folder "Setup" in "D:\" drive, in which you want to set a wallpaper as background image. So give following command in Command Prompt:
attrib +s D:\Setup
It'll change the attribute to "system ".
2. Now open Notepad and paste following code:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=path_of_the_wallpaper
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
Now change "path_of_the_wallpaper" to the exact path of the wallpaper which you want to set as background. Suppose the wallpaper is stored in "D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg", then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
NOTE: If you copy the wallpaper in the same folder which you are editing, then you can simply put the wallpaper name in the file. e.g. if you copy the "Image1.jpg" file in "Setup" folder, then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
"IconArea_Text" stands for the text color, you can change it to white, yellow, blue, black or any other color. You just need to know the hexa-decimal number of the color and then replace the code in "IconArea_Text" section. A few most used color codes are as follows:
Black - 0x00000000
White - 0x00FFFFFF
Green - 0x0000FF00
Blue - 0x00FF0000
Purple - 0x00C000C0
Red - 0x000000FF
Yellow - 0x0000FFFF
Indigo - 0x00FFFF00
3. Now save the file with name "Desktop.ini" (including quotes) and copy the file in the desired folder which is "Setup" in our example.
4. Thats it. Close the folder and re-open it. Now it should show the wallpaper as background.

My Acer Aspire One netbook only changes the wallpaper to solid colors.


one day my desktop switched from my selected theme to solid black. I could not choose anything else until I activated Windows - because the "trial period" had expired.
That was also in Win7

I cant change the wallpaper of my acer D260 how should i remedy this one?


You might have Windows 7 Starter, please be advised that Windows 7 Starter does not include Personalization feature for changing desktop background, window colors, or sound schemes.



However, there is a solution for the desktop wall paper for Windows 7 Starter. You have to deal with the Registry. Please read my notes below.

  • · Click start
  • · In the search box or run, type regedit, allow execution
  • · (Important, export the current registry setting) Right click on Computer and export the registry setting.
  • · Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\"
  • · On the right hand side pane, doubleclick on key named "Wallpaper"
  • · Change the path of the picture you want to use as your wallpaper (example path is "C:\temp\mywallpaper.jpg")
  • · Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions. Click "Advanced"
  • · Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
  • · Click on "Advanced" again then Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
  • · Click "Add". Type "Everyone" and click "OK". Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK". Click "OK" again
  • · Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
  • · Restart Computer

How do i remove a picture from my screen on my pc


Right click on a clear spot on your desktop and choose properties. Then click the "desktop" tab. In the list below note which option is highlighted. If it is a screensaver program or "Internet Explorer Wallpaper" choose "None" from the top of the list and then select a background color from the right lower corner. Select apply, then OK and close the desktop properties. Reboot. It should work correctly now. If it doesn't, you may not have administrator priveleges. Also, you can have this occur if you have a different background chosen in the administrative profile, and then you are using a different profile. To correct this, reboot, hit f8 until you get the option to choose "Safe Mode", choose the "Administrator" account, then follow the directions above to set the administrator account desktop picture to a plain screen color. After rebooting you should be able to get rid of the problem and have your chosen desktop come up each time you boot up.
