One more way to alter the desktop wallpaper in Windows is to open up the Personalize option on the desktop (called Properties in Windows XP). To do this, do the following:.
Right-click on the desktop as well as choose Personalize. (Or in the Windows 10 food selection, go to Settings > Personalization > Background.).
In Windows 8/7/Vista with Control Panel's Personalization applet, as well as in Windows XP via the Show Control Panel applet.
Under the Background dropdown, choose Photo.
You can opt to make use of a pre-loaded photo from Microsoft or choose Browse to locate a different image on your hard disk drive.
You can also determine if you want the photo to fit, stretch, or load the screen, or perhaps for it to be tiled, centered, or spanned across multiple displays.
Some versions of Windows have extra options here, like immediately altering the desktop wallpaper after so-many seconds, which is available in useful if you do not want to clear up with simply one history.
