An additional way to change the desktop wallpaper in Windows is to open the Personalize choice on the desktop (called Characteristic in Windows XP). To do this, do the following:.
Right-click on the desktop and choose Personalize. (Or in the Windows 10 food selection, go to Settings > Personalization > Background.).
In Windows 8/7/Vista via Control board's Personalization applet, and in Windows XP by means of the Present Control board applet.
Under the Background dropdown, choose Picture.
You can choose to make use of a pre-loaded photo from Microsoft or choose Browse to locate a different photo on your hard disk.
You can also choose if you want the picture to fit, stretch, or fill up the display, or perhaps for it to be tiled, centered, or spanned across several screens.
Some variations of Windows have additional options here, like automatically altering the desktop wallpaper after so-many seconds, which can be found in handy if you don't intend to work out with just one background.
