Desktop Wallpaper does not change size in "Personalize" Settings

Hi All

As of recently, my desktop wallpaper does not want to change size when I go to Personalize>Desktop Background>Picture Position. I chooses "Stretch" everytime even though I try using Center, Fit etc...This happens with different images at different sizes each...How to fix this?

Thank you

Hello ,

Hewlett Packard came out with a fix to solve the problem of wallpaper being stuck on Stretch.
Although it started its life as an HP fix, it also works with non-HP machines.

Try this :

Hope this helps
