Right click anywhere on your desktop and go to properties, go to the desktop tab and you can select which background you want from there, if its a pic from the internet easiest way is to right click on the pic and save to your documents then in the desktop tab browse for the image.

hope it helps

How to change wallpaper on HP windows 8


After you click on the desktop app and can see your desktop (don't confuse it with the apps background, you can't change that), right click on it, chose "personalize" then in the window that comes up you'll see "Desktop Background" at the bottom and click it.
From there you can use the "Browse" button on the top to find images you want to use. You can choose multiple images to load and set how often they can change.

How do i change the screen size -resolution on my computer?


Windows 7 Starter edition comes with one desktop background, which can't be changed or customized. Please see this link for details.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Personalize-your-computer

To change the desktop background

  1. Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_47.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Desktop Background.

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

    If the picture you want to use is not in the list of desktop background pictures, click the Picture location down arrow to view other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background and appear in the list of desktop backgrounds.

How to change my background


If you want to use the windows7 backgrounds, just "right-click" on your desktop and "left-click" personalize tab. On the bottom part "left-click" an icon with label "Desktop Background", there you can choose your desired background on your desktop.
You can also try "right-click" on a photo or picture, and choose Set as desktop background...
Hope that gives you an idea...

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!

My dell inspiron won't change backgrounds.


If you have Windows 7 Starter for netbooks, you cannot easily change the desktop wallpaper. You have to buy the full version of Windows 7 which will run just fine on your netbook. This is M$ way of making money.
