I know I’m not alone in this. I bought a great netbook that came with Windows 7 Starter. I added RAM and set the Visualization Properties to maximize performance. The little guy flies, but I’m stuck with a non-descript blue background. Looked all over for a reliable, simple and safe way to change the wallpaper.
Voila. Found it here:
How To Customize Wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter Edition – How-To Geek
Works like a charm and, as a bonus, personalizes colors, sounds, and screensavers too.
Go for it!
