No problem Arsalanronin. You can just remove the included folder in the library that you do not want to have show up.

Hello Morj, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What edition of Windows 7 do you have? The Windows 7 Starter edition does not have the Personalization feature included in it to allow you to be able to change the desktop background or to have slideshow. If you do have the Windows 7 starter edition, then you can use the free program in this tutorial below to be able to instead.

If you do not and the "Change picture every" menu is grayed out, then you will need to select (check) more than one picture for it to no longer be grayed out.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Use background image instead of background color

Hi there, For picture position I would like have my images centered. I know this might sound a bit odd but is there anyway to have centered images but have a background image instead of a background color? So the desktop would look like this:

-74brightonpose-wallpaper.jpg

And I notice that centering takes all screen space into account including the taskbar so the image doesn't sit completely centered. Is there anyway to center only in the screen space above the taskbar? Hope that makes sense. Cheers.

Hello Kiwichick,

Sorry, but no.

As a workaround, you could use Paint (mspaint.exe) and open the main background image (ex: blue one in your screenshot), then paste and center the other image on it and save this new combined image to use as your wallpaper with Fill instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Brink, Yes I know that. That's what I've been doing. But it's not so convenient if you have a whole folder of images you want to use. And then if I ever decided to change the background I would have to do them all over again. That's why I was hoping there would be some other way to do it.

Sorry, but there's just not a way to only have them centered above the taskbar.
