If you're using a computer with Windows 7 Starter edition you cannot change the background because Microsoft has locked that option on that version, you would need to upgrade your Windows 7.

To change the desktop background
  1. Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg and clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type desktop background, and then click Change desktop background.

  2. Click the picture or color that you want to use for your desktop background.

    If the picture you want to use isn't in the list of desktop background pictures, click an item in the Picture location list to see other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture that you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background.

How to change background desktop for acer aspire one(notebook)


I am assuming you have Microsoft Windows installed on this machine. To change the desktop background, right-click on the desktop and click either "Properties" or "Personalize". A window will pop up showing the current settings, including the current desktop background. To change it locate the picture you want to change it to, then click "apply". Go back to the desktop to confirm the change has been made.
If the picture you would like to use is on the internet, you can right-click on the picture and select "set as background".
Hope this helps!
