desktop tab in display properties disappeared

As I remember I changed my wallpaper a month ago on this Windows XP running desktop. Now today I thought to set a new wallpaper but when I right clicked and went to properties I was surprised to see there is no Desktop Tab any more. It was right here a month ago but know when disappeared. I tried to search fix for the same on web, found few registry editing. Went though all of them but yet there is no desktop tab in my desktop properties.

Do you guys have any idea what went wrong and how can I retrieve the Desktop Tab? Thanks in advance.

Re: desktop tab in display properties disappeared

Is your computer subject to Group Policy? If so, ask your system administrator at work. If this is happening on XP Home, read the instructions at the top of:

and apply the instructions to:

[It's in the right-hand column of line 128.]

If the "Group Policy" edit doesn?t work, you will need to run the registry file found on Kellys Korner "restorealldisplaytabs.reg" , but there are additional steps you may need to take for full restoration.
