Tech Tip: Use a picture for your desktop background

Posted on May 3, 2010

Use a Web graphic for your desktop background

The Web has many beautiful pictures. If you find a picture you particularly like, such as an image of a puppy, you can make it your desktop background, so that you can see it whenever you use your computer.

To use a Web graphic for your desktop background
1. Use Microsoft Internet Explorer to open the Web page with the picture you like.
2. Right-click the picture, and then click Set as Background.

Microsoft Windows XP displays the picture as your desktop background. For best results, use large pictures that are wider than they are tall.

You can do the same thing with personal pictures you may have on your computer, by browsing to them with My Computer.
