Using Any Image File As Desktop Background?
One of the best features of Win XP is to use any image from any image folder as your desktop background, wallpaper. For some reason this feature has stopped working and of course I have no idea why. I haven't changed any folder options or made any changes for that matter.
Hardware IBM Desktop - Background Image
It seems that I am the likely victim of an exploit of some sort, but I have been unable to find any information on it.The hardware is an IBM desktop, running Windows 2000.Somewhere along the line, I discovered that when I do a ctrl-alt-delete, the "background image" that appears has been replaced with a porn image. This is also the same background that appears during the Windows start and shutdown sequence, before/after the desktop appears.
Image Position / Configure The Desktop Background
Is there a way (short of editing the registry) to configure the desktop background so that an image occupies only a portion of the screen other than the center. I would liike to place a personal photo in, say, the right upper quadrant of the screen and leave the rest of the screen a simple solid color?
Unwanted Desktop Image / Regular Background
I have windows xp. Somehow I inadvertedly put an image from space.com on top of my regular background picture. I've tried everything I can think of to get rid of it like restore computer to earlier time...changing background..etc. nothing works. It ruins the beautiful background picture having this smaller picture overlapping it.
Primary Image - Background Pattern In Desktop Wallpaper

Can anyone tell me how to get the background image pattern to work.I have SP2 and Plus.
"Desktop-Background" Image Off-center?
I noticed that my Windows' "Desktop background (wallpaper) image" no longer displays correctly. After selecting any image (normally, I use one of my .jpg's), and setting it to "stretch," it will not display the "stretched" version to fit the image dimensions fully. It no longer "shrinks or expands" to fit the horizontal, actual size of the image to the width of my monitor's display area.
Change The Background Image
i go to change my packground image by going to the properties menu then display and here is where the problem begins. Normally you would find the images that come with the PC and the image you already have on the screen, well on my PC it used to show that now it is showing all of the pics in the "My Pictures" folder. What could be the problem, i went to the desktopicon in my System32 folder and there is nothing on the notepad?
Set An Image As The Background For A Folder
I have searched on google, but can't find the answer, so I post it here. The problem is:How can I set an image as the background for a folder (eg, when open this folder in Windows Explorer, the image appear as the background on the right pane). I saw that in some machines (WinXP), the desktop has a portion that I think is an HTML file (because it has hyperlinks and other content in it). When I change the desktop background picture, the picture changed, but the HTML portion is still there

Folder Background Image - Change The Atttributes
I managed to set the background image and the font color in a file system folder, when I was running WinME - I seem to remember it being an Active Desktop thing. OK, so I migrate to XP (SP2) and now I want to change the attributes of that folder back to standad - it's a legibility issue... :-) However... I can't for the life of me find where to change either the font color or the folder background image. Note: It's NOT the folder icon or the folder miniature I'm talking about, nor a mail folder.
Display Properties - Unavailable - Background Chosen Image
when I open my Display Properties and move to the Desktop tab and choose Browse to choose a picture to set as my background, after I have selected Open and the box closes, the Apply button is unavailable and the image I chose does not appear in my list or in the preview. I've also taken notice that certain images that were once in the list of available backgrounds images, such as Ascent, Autumn and Azul no longer appear to be available. Right clicking on an image and choosing Set as desktop background does not work, and neither does choosing the same option from the Picture Tasks. Does anybody have any idea what has happened and how I can restore whatever settings I may have changed without applying a system restore?
Background But No Desktop
A friend has a Compaq laptop running Windows XP. When you power up the system, the Windows XP logo screen comes up and then the desktop background comes up but it stops there. You never get any desktop icons or taskbar so there is no way to navigate. If anyone has any suggestions on how to debug this it would be appreciated. Thanks.
Cannot Select Desktop Image
I am running Windows XP on a Compaq Presario SR1300NX Desktop computer.My desktop no longer supports a background image. When I go into properties to select a picture, all the options are highlighted and I cannot deselct them. In Windows Explorer, when I right click, set picture as backround, nothing happens.I've tried restarting and setting the theme to default, but even then the default wall paper doesn't show up.However, when I try to restart my computer, or turn it off, right before the screen changes to the logoff display, the old background image I had set shows up, but only for less than a second.
Trying To Retrieve A Desktop Image
I had an image from an email as my desktop image and accidentally changed it to the default. The email image I was using previously is not saved anywhere on my computer and I do not have the email anymore. For the first five or six times I turned the computer on or off the old image would flash for a brief second (this no longer happens). I am wondering if the email image might be saved somewhere that might be possible to retrieve or is it gone for good?
Desktop Background Display
Desktop preview screen is blank, however, the image does display on the desktop. Background images with bitmap icon will display in preview, but not those with what appears to be a film icon. Some of the regular Windows images, i.e. Azul, Windows XP, etc. have the film icon, and do not display in preview.

Ghost Image On Desktop After Repair Of OS
I am having this odd graphics glitch on my desktop after I recovered the OS from a system32 file corruption. I used the recovery console to repair the corrupted .dll file, and everything is working properly now except that every once in a while when I right click to bring up an options window on anything (desktop or program icon) and then left click on one of the available options, a ghost image of the option I clicked will remain on the desktop. It doenst interfere with program functionality, but is just more of an eyesore. I have updated all my drivers I can think of and run scandisk on the RAID setup.

Can't Get Any Image On Desktop Anymore
Last nite, I picked up a worm or virus. It added doser.exe, and a dialer, and some others to my Windows/system32 folder. I went into safe mode and got them out.But now, I can't get any images on my desktop. It doesn't even show an option to do it from the properties window. The browse button is greyed out. However, it DOES show the background right after it boot up. At that time, there are no icons. Then the background becomes a solid color and the icons appear. Otherwise, the system SEEMS to be running fine.
