Desktop background
 
My computer died about a month or two back and I took it in to be fixed, but it just doesn't seem the same since I got it. Example, I can no longer put a picture on my desktop and open a window without the picture being gone when I lower the window? Does anyone know why my desktop background won't stay up?

Hello.

I am not sure what is happening? Could you please let us know your Operating System version? XP, Vista or Windows 7?

What happens when you right click on the image? Does it say Set to background?
What happens when you right click on your desktop? Does it show a menu?
Do you get Display Properties Dialog box?
When you click on Desktop tab under Display Properties - if you change the picture, are you able to change the picture?

Do you get any error message?

If you could give us a screen shot that will help us even more to find out your probelm.

Regards

Hello again.

Believe it or not I am still confuse :D.

I am assuming that you cannot keep your desktop background to stay on desktop regardless or window being open close or either?

Try the following:

1: In control panel go to
2: Ease of access center At the bottom, choose
3: Make it easier to focus on tasks
4: Under "Reading"
5: See if "Remove background images" box is checked.
If it is, uncheck it and that should get your desktop wallpaper back.

If not then try the following:

1: Click Start (That window icon thing on the left hand corner on taskbar)
2: Type run - on the search bar
3: This will bring RUN, right click on it and choose Run as Administrator
4: Type regedit -you need to type regedit in RUN box
5: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER - this is shown on the left hand side
6: Select (Drop down) --> Software ---> Microsoft --->Windows---->CurrentVersion---->Polices
7: Delete all folders related to Wallpaper and/or Activedesktop

That should resolve your issue.

Regards
