    What to do if having issue with changing Wallpaper in Windows Vista?

    Facing issue when trying to change desktop background in Windows Vista. I am working on windows vista on my Dell notebook and can't solve the issue of not changing the walls for Windows vista. Is there anyone who's facing the same issue? Help me!!

    Hello friend...

    simply follow these steps to resolve your issue:

    ->Right click on screen and make sure 'lock web items on desktop' option is not enabled in 'arrange icons by' menu.

    ->If its enable,then disable it and your problem is solved.

    If it doesnt workout follow this:

    ->Type regedit in run and press enter.

    ->select HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies

    ->Under these keys,if you see 'active desktop' key delete it

    ->Now look for 'system' key under 'policies' key. If you find it,then select it and look for a string value 'wallpaper' in right side pane.If it exists delete it.

    ->Restart your computer then you can select your wallpaper.

    Hope this may help you...
