To change the wallpaper (desktop background) on your HP computer running Windows 8, you can follow the steps below:
1.Right-click an empty area on your desktop and go to "Personalize".
2.Click "Desktop Background" and a settings window will come up.
3.You can change the desktop background image by either selecting one of the standard backgrounds that are displayed on your screen or by clicking "Browse" and navigating to a picture stored on your computer.
Important: If you wish to create desktop background slideshow, you need to select more than one picture.
4.To select or change the way your desktop background image appears, you can use "Picture position" drop-down menu. If you are creating a slideshow, you can set a time of your choice in "Change picture every:" drop-down menu.
5.Now, click "OK" to save your settings and close the window. Your new desktop background will get set.

To get a pictorial explanation of the above procedure, you can refer to "Changing the Windows 8 Desktop background" under "Changing the Windows 8 Desktop" section on the following HP support page:

After you click on the desktop app and can see your desktop (don't confuse it with the apps background, you can't change that), right click on it, chose "personalize" then in the window that comes up you'll see "Desktop Background" at the bottom and click it.
From there you can use the "Browse" button on the top to find images you want to use. You can choose multiple images to load and set how often they can change.

CANT CHANGE THE WALLPAPER


Hi Friend,

In case if you are using netbook, mostly netbooks comes with the starter editions of the OS like "Windows 8 Starter" or "Windows 7 Starter", these Starter editions does not have the option/capability to change the Wallpaper.
So, if you are using netbook with Windows Starter edition, I am afraid you will not be able to change the wallpaper.

Thank you.

I m unable 2 change my theme and wallpaper


If your operating system is Windows 7 Starter edition, the customization is disabled. Consider upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium or other edition for these features.
BTW . I found a hack for the wallpaper change in Windows 7 starter edition. if you want to try,
1. Click start and type regedit in the search box or run
2. Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\" folder and click on it
3. On the right hand side you will find a bunch of entries. Find the key named "Wallpaper" and double click on it and put the path of the picture you want as your new wallpaper (example path is "C:\Users\Big Dan\Pictures\new wallpaper.jpg")
4. Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions.
5. Click "Advanced"
6. Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
7. Click on "Advanced" again
8. Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
9. Click "Add"
10. Type "Everyone" and click "OK"
11. Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK"
12. Click "OK" again
13. Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
14. Restart Computer

How to change desktop wallpaper


Probably the easiest way to change your wallpaper is to right click on the picture you want, and select "set as wallpaper". Otherwise, right click on the desktop, select properties, go to desktop and browse. (In Vista, right click, select personalize, then desktop.)

How do i change my wallpaper for my HP Mini 210-1191NR i can change my screensaver justdont know how to chnge my wallpaper??


You have Genuine Windows 7 Starter on your system. Microsoft locked the wallpaper and several other features in this dumbed down version. Your only choice is to buy, yes BUY, a better version of Win7.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.
