Right click on desktop and select Personalize, then click on "Desktop Background" and you should be given a few options..."Fill, Fit, Stetch, Tile, or Center." One of them should let your eagle fly right.


Whoops, sorry. Guess I didn't see page two.

On that page, click on the desktop that you have or want. You will be taken to the next page, where you will see it in the lower left.

You have to give the page time. Wait 30-45 seconds before you click. It will work.
