    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 .

    I want to change my desktop background

    Click on the Start menu button. Then click on Settings and then on Control Panel.

    Double-click on the Display icon or text link. This will open a window named Display Properties.

    Click on Background if that tab is not selected. Click on one of the items that appear in the box labeled Wallpaper.

    Inspect the preview that appears above the Wallpaper menubox. Use the Display menu to the right to experiment with tiling, stretching or centering the picture that you are previewing.

    Click on Browse to use an image stored elsewhere on your hard drive. Locate the image and click Open.

    How do i change the desktop background on my hp mini 110-116nr laptop?

    You cannot change the wallpaper in starter edition. The feature is not included, it has been designed for entry level pc's only. Like everyone else is saying the tab is not there and when you right click on the image and click add as background it does not work. The most current and simplest ways is to select and right-click on the picture you wish to set as the background image. You can leave protected operating system files hidden to not have the desktop.ini files displayed, but leave system files unhidden to see the rest of them. First navigate to: %SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper. That's pretty much it, place your wallpapers there, create new folders etc, and they will show in the Windows Desktop Backgrounds menu in wallpaper selection
