Using Any Image File As Desktop Background?

Sep 14, 2005

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

Aug 14, 2005

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.

"Desktop-Background" Image Off-center?

Apr 4, 2010

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.

Set An Image As The Background For A Folder

Mar 23, 2005

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

Jun 18, 2005

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

May 2, 2006

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

Sep 16, 2007

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

Feb 20, 2007

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.

Can't Get Any Image On Desktop Anymore

Oct 17, 2005

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.

Trying To Retrieve A Desktop Image

Nov 5, 2006

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

Jul 25, 2005

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.

Can't Change Desktop Background

Mar 19, 2006

I am having difficulty changing my desktop wallpaper. No matter what I do, I cannot put a different picture or wallpaper on the desktop. I have already tried using the right click on the desktop and going into the properties that way. It won't even let me select any of the options for the wallpaper. And I used to be able to go to my photo files and just pick one, right click on it and select the "set as desktop background" option. But now it won't let me change it at all.
