Hi smile

When I booted up my Win7 (Enterprise) machine today I discovered that all the Wallpapers in my collection had somehow become reduced in size - and any one that I selected only displayed as a small picture in the centre of the screen woozy

This has never happened before. Does anyone know of a way to correct it, please ??

[I store them all in my "Pictures" library in a folder called "Wallpapers".]

Cheers.

Hi Mad,

Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select "Personalise".

Then click on the "Desktop Background" option (it has a small screenshot of your current background.)

There you'll see a dropdown menu entitled "Picture Position" with lots of options of how to display your wallpapers. Tiled, stretched, fitted, etc.

Hope that helps. luck

If Rushes' suggestion doesn't work, do a System Restore.
Odd things happen now and again and a System Restore usually takes care of it.

I always prefer the easy way first, Mad! Don't worry, you'll soon find lots of "ins and outs" for Windows 7.
