  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

Cant download to desktop


there are 2 main ways to download photos from your digital camera too your desktop:
1. connect the camera to the desktop via USB cable, this cable is usually supplied with the camera or can be bought at an electrical store, connect the camera to the computer and turn it on, if your using windows OS a dialouge box or list should appear giving you a number of options, choose either "import photos using windows" or "view photos in folder" use the second one to choose which photos you wish to be uploaded and then copy and paste them manually into your own destination folder.
2. instead of connecting the camera to the desktop, take out the memory stick being used in the camera , (SD card) and either use an memory card reader(hardware that connects to desktop) or slot it into the memory card slot in the front or back of your desktop tower. once connected follow the same steps as above when the dialouge box appears.
hope this helps you out, it hard to explain without showing. :) good luck
