Desktop WallPaper Settings

Hi,

I am unable to change the settings of wallpaper from full screen to center image or tile in windows 7. I go there by right click on desktop --> Graphics Option -->Panel Fit--> Full screen, Center image, Tile. If i select center image nothing happens, the full screen remains selected.


Can Anyone out there Help me???????????????

Hi aboni,

What are the dimensions of the image and the native resolution of your screen? An image will only tile if either or both of its dimension(s) is/are less than the relevant dimension(s) of your monitor (pixels). By monitor dimensions, I mean the current active resolution, not necessarily the native resolution.

Disregard what I said above, I did some experiementing, and the only setting that did somewhat as expected was "Fit", although the black bars appeared along the sides, instead of top and bottom as depicted. The other settings seemed to change the vertical dimensions of the wallpaper, but not the horzontal. This may have to do with resolutions, but I don't know.
