"How to Add Wallpaper & Graphics to your Desktop"
1) How do I add wallpaper to the desktop?
Let's start with the easiest way. You might consider printing the instructions out to make this easier for you but that is not necessary!
a) Go to
your favorite graphics site. I have lots of graphics
links to wonderful graphics sites here: http://www.annieshomepage.com/graphics.html
graphic image is similar to adding the wallpaper.
Now you have the image that you want on the middle of your desktop. Go to the desktop and in the middle just "RIGHT CLICK" and choose "Active Desktop" then choose "Customize my Desktop"
Near the top of that "tab" or "popup window" make sure you have the first box checked. That box is: "view my desktop as a web page"
on "NEW" and then another window will pop up.
NOTE: Before you click on "NO" there is another option where it says "click here if you don't want this box to come up again" and that might be a good idea but it is up to you. Either way is fine.
another pop up box or window will pop up and is titled
REMEMBER when I told you that you need to remember where you put that graphic/calendar image? Well that is where you need to go. Follow the path by that little "up arrow folder" near the top.
ONCE you find the graphic that you want to use click on it
then CLICK OK
THEN click on APPLY
NOW look at your desktop!!
If the image is not "CENTERED" in the middle of the desktop DON'T WORRY. Click on the image and "drag" or "move it" where you want it.
That's it. You should be done now.
LAST QUESTION was about the fonts and colors of the other items or around the items on your desktop. For example the "recycle bin".
On my Desktop that would be WHITE. But yours may be blue or gray.
To change it to WHITE like mine do the following:
1) RIGHT CLICK on the DESKTOP and choose PROPERTIES
2) CLICK the TAB at the TOP that says: "APPEARANCE"
3) The section that says "item" make sure it has "desktop" in the window.
4) You should see under the word COLOR the color of the border of the wording of the items on your desktop.
5) NOW click on COLOR and choose one you like. If none of those appeal to you then click on that bar near the bottom that says: "OTHER" then find and select the color you like. THEN click on OK
6) then click on APPLY and it should be changing the color Then CLICK on OK and the box should go away.
THAT'S all for NOW.
image MAY NOT be centered. NO PROBLEM!
should do it.
