An additional method to change the desktop wallpaper in Windows is to open the Personalize option on the desktop (called Properties in Windows XP). To do this, do the following:.
Right-click on the desktop and pick Personalize. (Or in the Windows 10 food selection, go to Setups > Personalization > History.).
In Windows 8/7/Vista with Control board's Personalization applet, and in Windows XP using the Show Control board applet.
Under the History dropdown, pick Image.
You can decide to use a pre-loaded picture from Microsoft or pick Browse to locate a different photo on your hard disk.
You can also choose if you desire the picture to fit, stretch, or load the screen, or even for it to be tiled, centered, or spanned across several displays.
Some variations of Windows have additional options below, like instantly changing the desktop wallpaper after so-many seconds, which is available in handy if you don't want to settle with simply one history.
