    Hello Chen,

    Double check to make sure that you did all of the steps in OPTION TWO to also install the Personalization Panel after you downloaded it. Once installed, right click on the desktop and click on Personalization to see the option to change the desktop background in step 5B.

    Hope this helps,

    Hello Crazyfication93, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It depends on the size of the image you are using, and what Background Position (ex: Fill, Fit, etc...) you select, but yes it should be able to fill the entire desktop background with the image.

    Hope this helps,

    Hello Krnxchunsa,

    After you rename the default img0 JPG file back in the C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows folder, go to registry location below.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    Next, check the Wallpaper string value in the right pane at the registry location above to make sure it has the Data value below for it.

    %windir%\web\wallpaper\windows\img0.jpg

    Is there a difference between using %windir% and %systemroot% on the wallpaper registry value?

    It's just that %windir% was used by default.

    They both open the C:\Windows folder in Windows 7, but here's the technical difference:


    %systemroot% = System returns the location of the Windows root directory. Newer variable introduced in Windows NT and up.

    %windir% = System returns the location of the OS directory. Older legacy variable.
