Thanks, GG

Oh, You don't need to keep the program running to keep the background! When you click "Save Changes" it automatically closes by itself! I must of been mistaken by "If the Oceanis program is closed, then the desktop background goes with it. You will need to leave the Oceanis program running to keep the background." meaning I must keep the program as an open window.
Anyway, this has been the BIGGEST help! I don't feel like I have a stupid computer now

Thank you so much for the help with the background wallpaper, but however, the Personalization Panel won't let mechange the colour of the window frame and taskbar. Is there a way to do that for Windows Starter?
Hello GG, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but the option in 6B of Option Two is only available in Windows 7 Home Basic instead.

Other than using Option One in the tutorial below to change a few color scheme settings while using any scheme other than "Windows 7 Basic", I'm not sure in Windows 7 Starter.

Wow, a great tutorial. Thanks for the Forum.

I'm still having issues with my background image from the downloaded personalized software.

I followed the tutorial for windows 7 starter and downloaded the personalized software, but there no picture when I select an image, only the background color. When I boot up the computer, the image shows for a few seconds, but then goes away. I uninstalled the asus dock, checked the security settings, and admin settings. Not sure where to go from here.

Hello grandinquisitor, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might double check the items listed in the blue Note box under Option One to see if any may apply. If not, then you might try another option in the tutorial to see if it may work better for you.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Well, you see I'm trying not to do option one with oceanis (which is why I erased it); the program is just a bit clumsy in comparison to option 2. So my question is more in regards to option 2.

That's fine, but still check the items in the blue Note box to see if any may be a cause.
