Windows 7: No Personalization?

No Personalization?

I've been trying to change the desktop background on my new mini HP notebook, running Windows 7, and the background won't change. It won't change when I right click an image and click on, "Change desktop background." I can't find the options in my control panel, either. Is it my computer or am I missing something?

Hello Daniel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you have the Windows 7 Starter edition. It does not have the personalization features included with it. However, this may be able to help you with this.

Hope this helps,
