Windows 7: Setting background on laptop

24 Jan 2012   #11

32 bit
Found the answer

Went thru control panel. Looks like the pic position was set to center. However the display didn't have the large black border. I don't know why it would take a small "box" out of center of selected pic and then fill the entire screen with it while in the "center" mode. Like I said, everything was in proportion.

How the setting for position got changed is beyond me.

Anyway, problem is resolved.

Thanks for inputs.

And have a great day!
