Windows 7: Left Sided Wallpapers

Left Sided Wallpapers

If I had the time to spare I could probably find thissomewhere else in the forum but… Yah… Life and long weeks away because of workhappened and here I am. Anyway I have a wallpaper slideshow of saved images andfan art of games I play and I’m getting tired of only seeing half of thepicture. I have the default wallpaper settings so that all pictures are set to:Fit to screen mode. As a result they all sit in the centre of the screen and Ihave Skype snapped to the right half of my screen and its cutting off half thewallpaper as I said. I was wondering if there was any way to force the picturesto the left without going to the picture folder and editing the 1000+ picturesso they have a really wide right edge. (This more effects the full bodyportraits than anything else because they are tall and skinny.) I know I couldjust keep adjusting the width of Skype so I could see it, but I don’t feel likeputting in that much effort considering I have the wallpaper set to changeevery 10min.
I will also attach a picture of my desktop (with most ofthe icons blanked out, you don’t need to know what I have) I run an Aero themeand have taken the screen shot with Skype open but mouse of the ‘show desktop’button down the far right that way you can see the picture and the outline ofSkype and hopefully understand what I’m saying.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would guess Fill would be the easiest option to use
Center will give you the same space on each side of course :/
Stretch will kill the images completely

I don't know of anyway to force the images to the left

Images the proper screen size has to start some time even at 1600x900 would appear better than a portrait image will,
Usually a matter of taking screen shots of the images in full screen or an increased page zoom rate instead of saving them as a download or save picture as... is a good start.

Thanks for the welcome.

I have tinkered with fill and stretch and the others and they all work finewhen I get a widescreen wallpaper but I was just hoping for a way to move theskinnier ones. I’m not super worried about the whole thing, it would just beone of those things that would be nice to have, if you know what I mean

I never realized using single sided RAM in my old PC might cause a problem until I contacted a manufacturer. I Googled quite extensively & confirmed this could be an issue. Problem is I cannot find out anything about my PC or mobo regarding which type it uses. The RAM manufacturer websites...
