Hi, eknirb. You sure can. Just follow these simple steps:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalize in the context menu.
  3. Click Desktop Background in the lower left hand corner.
  4. Click Browse next to Picture location, and select the folder with the images you want in your theme.
  5. Click Select all in the top right, and then click Save changes in the bottom right.
  6. This theme will be applied, and you can save it by clicking Save theme under My Themes.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any problems.
