windows 7 personalize desktop background RRS feed

  • Question

  • The desktop backgrounds were working fine (previous 2 weeks ago), picture would change everyday. I downloaded all the other themes (ex. Brazil, China, Spain, etc.). At first these other themes worked fine and then all of a sudden, the desktop background picture won't change.

    Bottom line is I am unable to change anything in "Desktop Background". And I have had the same background picture for 2 weeks unable to change it. Have clicked on every button or drop down menu like "Change picture every:" to 10 seconds, 30 seconds, etc. and still nothing.

  • Hi,

    How about changing other theme?

    Meanwhile, please open %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes folder, delete the jpg file, then re-select the problematic theme for a test. If the issue only occurs on one theme, it could be a corrupted theme issue.
