Windows 7: Right click customization Win7/8.

Right click customization Win7/8.

Hi, Im new here and I just need information as to how I can do this in windows 7 & 8, because before I am able to do this thing in winXP but since the upgrade, from XP to 8 then to stable win7 I'm completely lost, anyway if you guys have some time can you guys inform me on how to do this or if not redirect me to the right page with tutorials on how to do it.

*And yes just to be clear I'm talking about the BG image when you right click on your desktop*
*And yes I didn't have any place to put it online so hopefully you guys can see the image on my 1d*

It's really not a necessity on my part to have this, but it would be cool to have some of the same customizations that I previously had when I was still using in XP

Please and Thank You
