In this Seventh article of the series called “Taking Control of your Windows Desktop“, I’m going to show you how easy it is to change your Windows 7 Desktop Background.

The Desktop Background is the “blank screen” your icons are sitting on. And although a lot of folks prefer to have a solid color (which you can change) because it makes the icons easy to see, you can also populate the background with pictures, that in Windows 7 can be set to cycle through every so many minutes, seconds, or hours.

On my own background, I’ve always liked to put pictures of family!

[NOTE: In my book, the Windows PC Guidebook I talk in great detail about how to work with the Windows Desktop, including the background. CLICK HERE to learn more about the book.]
