One more method to transform the desktop wallpaper in Windows is to open the Personalize choice on the desktop (called Properties in Windows XP). To do this, do the following:.
Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize. (Or in the Windows 10 menu, most likely to Setups > Personalization > History.).
In Windows 8/7/Vista via Control Panel's Personalization applet, and in Windows XP using the Display Control Panel applet.
Under the History dropdown, select Photo.
You can opt to use a pre-loaded image from Microsoft or select Browse to locate a different image on your hard drive.
You can also decide if you desire the image to fit, stretch, or fill the screen, or even for it to be tiled, focused, or spanned across multiple screens.
Some versions of Windows have added choices below, like instantly changing the desktop wallpaper after so-many secs, which comes in convenient if you don't intend to clear up with just one background.
