Windows 7: wallpaper unwanted resizing

wallpaper unwanted resizing

I've been running 32 bit Windows 7 Home Premium since it came out retail. I generally put photos on the desktop as background. Files are often 2816X2112 or those types of dimensions. For as long as I can remember my computer (including older OS and even Windows 7 until recently) would automatically resize the background picture to make it meet the dimensions of the monitor (1680X1050). Now all of a sudden it isn't resizing pictures so the pictures are stretched out to full size and only portions of the pictures are visible on the desktop. I can't figure out what changed it or how to get it back. Any ideas?

Right click on desktop > personalize > click on the blue under "Desktop background" (bottom left) > then try different "picture positions" (bottom left again).

Welcome to SevenForums Karkalec,
Which do you have selected here in desktop backgrounds? Fill, fit or?

It was set to "Fill" and I set it to "Fit" and the problem appears to be solved. Not sure how it got changed in the first place, but thanks so much for solving it for me!!

wallpaper aspect locked to "Stretch"

I'm using Win 7 Home Premium on a HP Pavilion dv6.

My problem is that when i try to change the wallpaper aspect it always resets to 'Stretch' after I click the "save changes" button.
