One more way to change the desktop wallpaper in Windows is to open up the Personalize option on the desktop (called Feature 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 Settings > Personalization > Background.).
In Windows 8/7/Vista via Control board's Personalization applet, and in Windows XP via the Present Control board applet.
Under the Background dropdown, select Photo.
You can choose to use a pre-loaded picture from Microsoft or select Browse to find a different image on your hard disk drive.
You can also choose if you want the photo to fit, stretch, or load the screen, and even for it to be tiled, focused, or spanned across several screens.
Some versions of Windows have added alternatives here, like automatically transforming the desktop wallpaper after so-many seconds, which comes in helpful if you do not want to clear up with just one history.
