Windows Desktop Backgrounds

Hello everyone,

I am using windows 7 and I would like to locate where are stored the pictures that serve as backgrounds.
I've downloaded a few themes (Australia, Germany, France etc...) and would like to arrange them so that they are on the same folder.
Now I can only have one theme showing at a time, and have to manually change them from time to time to change the landscape.
Thank you.

Welcome to the forum,

What was the error you got?

We have a tutorial for changing the background in Starter,

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...7-starter.html

I like option two myself, since it adds the personalization panel to the right click context menu of the desktop.
