    steps to change the background:


    1)Windows 8 has the native ability to set a different image as the background on each display.

    2)To enable, open the “Personalization control panel” applet by right-clicking the desktop and selecting “Personalize”.
    3)Click the “Desktop Background action” at the bottom of the displayed dialog, which opens the “Desktop Background customization screen.”
    4)Browse to the required location where the images are, then right-click an image and configure for the desired monitor.

    Open the SETTINGS CHARM, then tap or click PC SETTINGS,
    tap or click PERSONALIZE, then change visuals in windows.

    To change the background :

    Open SEARCH CHARM, enter PERSONALIZATION, click or tap SETTINGS,
    tap or click PERSONALIZE to do the task.

    You can create your own or download background from there too.

    If you would like transform style as well as background with home windows 8 beautifully select the pc as well as wide open personalization and select a style you would like as well as also you transform their adjustments.
    If you'd like you can even create your very own themes. And you may as well fixed just one background
    Find the impression report as well as appropriate click after that it click set it because rear ground.
    To vary colour and pictures :

    Wide open a SETTINGS CHARM, after that touch or press PC SETTINGS,
    touch or press PERSONALIZE, after that transform visuals with windows.

    To vary the setting :

    Wide open SEARCH CHARM, get into PERSONALIZATION, press or touch SETTINGS,
    touch or press PERSONALIZE to perform a task.

    You can create your or get background beyond this concept too.
