Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1150 Notebook ?

Background Hello, My computer's display controls won't let me put a picture on my background. It will only let me put a color up there. I don't know what to do and any help would be appreciated. Thank you. -Adrien


Answers :

Hi Adrien, the easiest way to set a picture as a Windows background is to open the picture in your web browser and right click on it. A menu box should appear, about half way down you should see an option labeled *Set as Background*. Left click on that option and Windows will automatically use that picture as you background image and tile it to fill your entire desktop. Alternatively if you have Windows XP and use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer program to display the picture the process is the same except when you right click on the picture the selection will be *Set as Desktop Background*. When you select that option it will do the same thing. If you don?t like the tiled effect right click on the desktop and select properties from the popup menu. In the display properties box that appears click on the Desktop tab, and in the lower right hand corner you will see a field labeled *Position*. Left click on the pull down arrow and select center or stretch, depending on what effect you want.\015\012\015\012Let us know if you need any other help and don?t forget to rate the posting.
