Desktop background in Windows 10

    Question

  • While in Photos is there a way to select a photo and make it my desktop background? I was able to do it in Picasa but have not figured out how to do it in Photos. I know I can go into Settings>Personalization but I would like to be able to do it directly from Photos.

  • Hi vtfisherman.

    You can do that when you open a single picture in the Windows Photo app (see screenshot below), but there's no way do to that when you're browsing all the pictures you have stored in your system.

    You could use the Windows 10 Feedback Hub and suggest it to Microsoft.

    Bye.

  • Hi,

    Also, we can just right click on the picture when opening in Photos, also, we can find the Set as on the context menu.

  • Got it! Thank you ever so much. I was only checking the picture and not opening it.  Thought there had to be an easier way.
