Another means to change 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 and select Personalize. (Or in the Windows 10 food selection, most likely to Settings > Personalization > History.).
In Windows 8/7/Vista with Control Panel's Personalization applet, and in Windows XP through the Show Control Panel applet.
Under the History dropdown, select Photo.
You can decide to make use of a pre-loaded photo from Microsoft or select Browse to locate a different image on your hard disk drive.
You can also determine if you want the picture to fit, stretch, or fill up the display, and even for it to be tiled, focused, or extended throughout multiple screens.
Some variations of Windows have added choices below, like instantly changing the desktop wallpaper after so-many seconds, which comes in handy if you do not wish to resolve with simply one background.
