Re: someone please help cant change background!

Windows 7 Starter does not include:

  • Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the “Windows Basic” or other opaque themes. It also means you do not get Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek.
  • Personalization features for changing desktop backgrounds, window colors, or sound schemes.
  • The ability to switch between users without having to log off.
  • Multi-monitor support.
  • DVD playback.
  • Windows Media Center for watching recorded TV or other media.
  • Remote Media Streaming for streaming your music, videos, and recorded TV from your home computer.
  • Domain support for business customers.
  • XP Mode for those that want the ability to run older Windows XP programs on Windows 7.

Re: someone please help cant change background!

i see that you asked about this a few months ago, but in case you haven't found a solution yet i thought i'd answer...

 

first, go to this site and read these instructions:

http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/03/14/free-program-lets-you-easily-change-wallpaper-images-on-wind...

 

next, go to this site and click 'download' (for some reason there's no direct link from the instruction site above to this one with the download):

http://starter-background-changer.uptodown.com/en/download

 

i just did this myself and it worked :smileyhappy:  and not that you would trust what i say, but i happen to know french and therefore could tell that the instructions were just like the normal ones for installing things in english and so i think it's totally safe

Hi,

 

Are you talking about Chrome ?

Re: someone please help cant change background!

Thank you for taking the time to offer help!

 

The 1st website you list, http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/03/14/free-program-lets-you-easily-change-wallpaper-images-on-wind... is in French.

 

I didn’t recognize the information on the 1st screen. It looked like A screen for installing a program, but I didn’t know which one.

 

I couldn’t follow when I didn’t know where to start.

 

I know some stuff about computers. (Some would say, enough to be dangerous.)
