Hello Kirsty, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you have Windows 7 Starter or Home Basic installed on your notepad?

If so, then this is why you do not see an option to change the desktop background since those Windows 7 editions do not include that feature. The tutorial below can help show you how to use a free 3rd party program to be able to change your desktop background in these editions though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
