Have you ever wondered how to change your computer’s background but don’t know how to or maybe you are just sick of the same old background. Here are the steps on how to change your background in seconds.
1: Right click on your desktop. You will see a menu with options now(arrange icons by, refresh, new, paste, paste shortcut), go all the way down to properties.
2: A small window will pop out with a name of Display Properties, you will see few tabs that are named themes, desktop, screen saver ,appearance and settings. Click on Desktop.
3: The window will change now and you will see a big computer picture and it will say background.
4: Scroll down with your mouse to see different backgrounds, just click with your mouse on the background name and you will see it how it looks like on the computer picture above. Most XP computers come with 50 or so backgrounds when the computer was bought.
5: Ones you are done seeing all the backgrounds, click on the background name’s (you will see the name highlighted in blue) , now go to the right and you will see a text saying Position(select the option you want, you can play around too see which one you like, I recommend the position to be set to stretch because it looks better.
6: Click on Apply and in few seconds you will see your background change on the desktop, Click on OK to close the window.
You may also use just a plain color as a background also. Follow steps one, two and three and now go all the way to the background options click on none.
Now go to Color which is on the right-bottom side and you will see an option Color, click down on the options and chose your favorite color. Click On Apply and ones you see your color background appear on the desktop , click OK.
If you wanted to use a picture of your self, family member or anything, you will follow steps one, two, and three and then click on Browse which is on the right side to find the picture.( Browse just means search). Ones you clicked there a window will pop out asking you where the picture is located, you will have to find in the folder and click on the one you want. Ones you clicked on the picture the small window will close, you will notice on the background options that the picture name you just selected appears on there and it’s selected for you already (highlighted in blue). Now you may want to change the position of your picture so select the best one you like, I always go with stretch but people have different taste. Click on apply when done selecting position and you will see that your desktop background changed into the picture your selected. Press OK now and you are done.
You see that was easy.
