Wallpaper will not change in windows xp
for some reason I am no longer able to change the wallpaper on my xp computer. I have checked the various Registry settings and everything appears to be set a 0 which should allow me to change the wallpaper. In the display properties I can select various backgounds and it will show in the preview however once I apply I only get a blue screen as my background. Is there any other possibly solutions to this issue?
re: Wallpaper will not change in windows xp
Click on Start > Run and type msconfig here. In the box here go to Services. In this go below and search for Themes. Check that it is selected. If this is not selected you cannot modify any changes in Windows XP. You will need to reboot your system once and then check back. If this does not work, try to run system restore. It is located in Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
