Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save

I have bought a new HP laptop, with Windows 7 pre-installed in it. Well, it is already having an unusual problem. The issue is that the Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save. I have tried all of the following options:
  • Fill
  • Fit
  • Tile
  • Center
But, it saves in the Stretch mode only. If anyone knows why this is happening, then please help me with the probable solution that can be used in this case. All possible replies and suggestions are very much appreciated.

Re: Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save

According to me, it looks like some setting problem that is resulting in the issue that Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save. Enabling a system restore should prevent the problem that you are facing. Make sure that you do the restore to the factory settings, so that any wrong changes made will be rolled out.

Re: Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save

This is a very useful information shared here. I have tried out this application that is provided by Calvin K as my system was also struck by the same Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save problem. It does not depend on whatever laptop or desktop that you are using, as it works for any of them running Windows 7.

The solution to this problem is given by Hewlett Packard that came out with a fix to solve the problem of wallpaper being stuck on Stretch. Although it started its life as an HP fix, judging from responses to previous posts it also works with non-HP machines. Download it from here. If you are on a Non HP systems then download this wallpaper picture position enabler from here.

Re: Desktop Background or Picture position in Windows 7 won't save

I had a similar problem, I was advised to remove registry items; not a good idea. I have just downloaded Wallpaper Picture Position Enabler from the HP website in downloads nad support. It is now working perfectly. Hope it works for you.

Good Luck
