Does anybody know how to set your own desktop wallpaper on windows 7 (starter edition I think it's called?) - Microsoft for some inexcplicable reason removed that feature from this version of Windows... but I've heard that there is a way around it, but I can't figure it out.

 

I'm fed up of seeing that microsoft logo everytime I look at my PC :P

Go to the desktop, right click, select "Personalize", and you'll be able to change all sorts of features.

That doesn't work - Microsoft removed the option of setting your own wallpaper on Windows 7 Starter Edition (the pre-installed version on a lot of netbooks)

Hard to believe - even as far back as the days of the Commodore Amiga I was able to choose my own wallpaper, but microsoft decided that feature wasn't to be allowed in this version of windows.
 

There are apparently ways around it if you know what you are doing - but unfortunately I don't :P

Oooooh ok. You'll have to download a program to do that. Hold on a sec...

Edit: Ok here we go: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/47294-desktop-background-change-windows-7-starter.html I suggest "Option One"
