DeskTop Background is blurred

I just upgraded to windows 7 and one of the up dates was to my video card. The computer is nice and clear but when I set a picture to desktop background it's blurred. I checked Nivdia web site and it is the lastest driver. I used this same download on another computer and it's OK.

Hello Squid,

Try the different Picture Positions (step 5 in tutorial below) available when changing the desktop background to see if that may be it. Your image may not be sized properly and is being distored if streched to fit.

Desktop Background - Change

Hope this helps,

I can use one of those pictures and my background on the desktop is perfect. I have a place where I go on line for pictures and when I set one of those for desktop back ground is when it gets blurred. I've never had this problem before.

I had a senior moment. I was clicking on the small picture instead of clicking on the picture to enlarge it and then setting it as back ground. Guess it's going to be one of those days. Everything is right with the world again. Thank you Brink.
