Try this click on the start orb and type the following in search and when the jpg image shows up right click on it and "open file location"

  • Go to this folder: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\(copy and paste that into the Start/search or Run box).
  • Delete the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file.
  • Try to set your wallpaper again.

Let us know if that fixes it.
