Can't change my background image.

I tried to select several photos, right click and set as background without result.   Looke at control panel - display but don't see there that would allow me to change the background image. Right click on the desktop - properties selection - only tabs I have are screensave, the themes, the appearance and settings, I don't see where these allow you to change the background image.

Try (restore desktop display properties)
Start > run and type:
regsvr32 /i shell32
regsvr32 themeui

Restart the computer.

If cela does the trick.

Options to change the desktop wallpaper may be missing or unavailable on a Windows XP-based computer

The Desktop tab does not appear in the display properties dialog box in Windows XP

Straight line 285 - restore the tabs display.

  • How can I change the background image for a single tab on the navigation bar

    I create a film site for LEVEL and for the navigation bar, I intend to have a different character for each tab. However, I can't put one image of each separate tab. Instead, a single image appears on each of the tabs. Here is an example of the CSS source.

    So, how can I put one image on each of the tabs (home, cast, photos, etc.). Thanks in advance for your help.

    Assign a class to the element, and use CSS to apply an image as in

  • class = 'home'; > Home

  • Cast

  • Photos

  • Music

  • Interviews

  • Links

  • and the CSS

    #navigation li a: link. Home, #navigation li a: visited. Home {}

    background-image: url (.. / Images/gifs/Batman-still-2.gif);


  • How can I change the background to the photos in the windows image viewer.

    original title: How can I change the background to the photos in the windows image viewer.  I hate it in context and would like to have a black background that surrounds photos.

    I had before an Adobe photoedit who saw the pictures surrounded by a black background.  I accidentally deleted the adobe photoedit.  So now, I find my pictures with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.  However, I hate the white background that surrounds photos.  How can I change the context surrounding the photos of BLACK color?


    I suggest that you try to do system restore or reinstall Photoedit and check to see if it helps:

  • Icons of Windows/folder/images virgins; can not change the background in the image.


    I don't know what happened, but I had somehow the virus/trojan thingy I don't even know if it has nothing to do with my problem. I know that since discover and try to remove the virus/trojan said, I experienced a few problems:
    1. my file & image icons (tiles) were literally emptied in large mode. But there is NO icon file (photo). The text/image folder is still there. The REAL folder icon shows when using small icons, but if I switch to large icons, it extends a smaller and makes VERY pixelated (sp?) (photo). In any case, I have inserted screen captures.

    2. When you delete a file, I noticed the associated picture icon is black (photo).

    3. I can't change my desktop image using the photos, I can however change the solid color black color I want OR I can use a canvas photo and set it as my desktop. The icons below the screen background images is empty as well (photo).

    I can assure you that I unchecked the "always show icons, never thumbnails" option in the Folder Options under control panel (photo).

    ANY help would be appreciated, it drives me crazy.

    Thank you

    I never found a solution to this problem. I've just upgraded from Vista to Windows 8 and everything is fixed. Clearly.

    Hello helpmezune,

    Move your cursor to the bottom right of your screen, as if you were about to shut down your PC. Charms bar appears. Click the settings (gear) icon. In the settings window, click on the option change PC settings at the bottom of the window. You can change the image of the needle space of the screen option customize in the settings window of change of PC.

    A good starting point.

    There are many and varied ways to remove the background from using the background Eraser, creating masks, layer, then the use of the channels.

  • You can change the background image to a variable?

    I'll be honest, I don't expect really a yes answer to this, but I thought I might as well see if I can save me some work.

    I'm creating a module of e-learning training of personnel who must show a slightly different content depending on the region of the user (there are three). For the moment, I have the legend and click boxes conditional use actions to understand what the user selected region, but the capture system uses specific sites in the region with different flags etc.. I was wondering: is it possible for me to change the background image of a slide in the value of a variable, or I just have three separate slides for different pages?


    You will not be able to change the background image. What should be possible, but it will drastically increase the size of your file is to put 3 images with the dimensions of the blade and entering in the slide show, the appropriate image based on the chosen variable. I don't know if everything has to change in the background, or perhaps only in certain areas? In this case, try to have it be flying image as small as possible.


  • Why change the background image of the dashboard of data crash the app?

    I'm changing the background image of my dashboard (on a third generation iPad).  Whenever I try to make the change, the data dashobard app breaks down just.  Even if I try to change to a color, the application crashes.  I can insert a picture without problem.  I guess it's just a bug or something but has anyone else seen this problem?

    I was able to reproduce this crash with the following steps:

    -Set up a background image of a page

    -Copy the dashboard somehow. You can reproduce the dashboard, share by email, export and re - import OR clouds, etc.

    -Open the copy of dashboard

    -From the copy, change the background image (for a solid color or another image)

    If you set a background image of a page, close and reopen your dashboard and then try to change the background to something else, you will encounter this error.

    Solution: If you have the original background image in your Camera Roll, you can fall as an image on the same page (Photo Palette, select in the library). Then you can remove this image and change the background also image.

    If you do not have the original image, you may need to start with a new dashboard. (For each page on the old dashboard, you can tap the bottom, select all, copy / paste on another dashboard).

    There is a similar problem with images removed, if you shared the dashboard and you work on a copy. In this case, the solution is to copy and paste the image before deleting. (Otherwise, you'll get a dialog error instead of an accident, but the image is not clear).

  • How can I create a password protected folder? Also, how can I change the background in the files?

    Well my question about his car, sometimes you have things in your computer that you don't want others to read or watch.
    Once you put a password on a folder to prevent others to take a peek inside. No idea how to do it again?

    Once when I had windows Millennium Edition, I managed to change the background image in the folder its self. so when you opened it, you could have your own custom folder. But now I must keep that boring white folder is still no way to do it?

    As WinNT, Win2K, WinXP and Vista before him, NTFS in Windows 7
    file security paradigm are dependent on, or allow, crude oil and
    method heavy password for individual applications,
    EAD, he uses the superior method to explicitly
    Set file/folder permissions to individual users or groups.

    As work around raw, you can place the file in a compressed
    file and a password to unzip the folder to view/access its
    content. In addition, some applications allow the user to protect by password
    their specific data files. Read the help files for the specific application
    For more information on this feature.

    For your situation, simple action plan would be to
    Create a user limited account for someone else who uses your computer,.
    and set it up so it doesn't have permissions to access your personal data

    een this ability
    with the use of the 3rd party applications. Certainly not Windows 7
