Windows 7: background

26 Oct 2009   #1

windows 7 pro

I am running windows 7 professional and with the aero themes for the desktop, is there a way to stop the background picture from changing?

Not sure if this should be a different thread, but is there an easier way to get to disk defragmenter [without creating a shortcut]?

Hi 7up,

The way I know to stop the changing wallpapers if you're using a theme, is to just right click on the desktop, go to personalize, click on the Desktop Background near the bottom, and uncheck all the wallpapers in the current theme you're using and save changes. Or you can change the time rotation of the changes there too.

You can get to the defragmenter by just typing in dfrgui in the start menu search.
