Windows 7 Starter Edition on these netbooks will NOT allow you to change the background. Microsoft left these features out of the Starter version.

that's so stupiddd! we have to pay $80 just to channge a background. wow, if i knew that maybe i wouldn't have bought this computer.. anyways, we shouldn't have to do that.. what's wrong with just changing the boring blue background i have to something i would enjoy looking at when i turn on my computer...? ohhh well, i guess i'll just HAVE to live with it. but for future refrences, LET US CHANGE THE BACKGROUND. thanks!

Hey there. I've tried the control panel, the graphics panels, and everything and nothing works. I tried to right click the picture and clicked 'set as...' blah blah blah, but it wouldn't set it. What do I do?

There is a background. In order to replace it, we need to copy the new photo of the same exact dimensions (width x height) over the old one. But where is that background located?

if you have windows starter you can NOT change your background, when they created this they limited the options and cut back on things such as this. You can purchase windows 7 full but it does cost money and is it really worth it :S im still yet to figure out if there is a way around it, if i do get there i will let you no.

Thanks

there is no way of changing it, windows have put a lock on it for some strange reason but i think there is some software/program you can download in order to change it through that, google it!

same here i tried applying a picture mutiple times and wondered why when i clicked 'set as background' it remained the same but thanks now i know why! that was really incompetant of them to do knowing that the customers will eventually want to change the background..I mean if its my PC I want it to make it as personal as posssible but thats hard to do when all owners of this model have the same exact background
