We could use a bit more information. did it always do this? was this an upgrade or clean install. do you get an error message?

Look in event viewer (type eventvwr in search) go to the windows log>application tab.

Look for critical errors (they have red in the left column) that pertain to the problem. when you find them note the event ID and source codes and tell us what they are.

Changing picture position for background?
I've repeatedly attempted to center, fill, fit or tile an image I wanted to use as a desktop background, but the changes do not take place. I can get the picture to be my background, but that particular change will not work. I'm able to change my theme in every other way, however. I've tried...
