Choose the 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 7, depending on which you have. Then click open the Software solutions bit and download the "Wallpaper Picture Position Enabler"

That'd depend upon the pixel height-width of the image you're tiling and your computer's screen resolution.

Thank you, Fayla. Your directions worked.

Fayla,

Thank you! Your directions helped me fix a problem I've had going on for 3+ years. Trying to set background photos always drove me crazy because they would always stretch and look bad.

I did the fix you put on here and now I can see the pics I want, in "non-stretched" versions. Yay!
