How to Change Wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter

If you have a machine with Windows 7 Starter installed, probably you'll curious to know how to change your desktop background.

Guess what? You 'disallowed' (by Microsoft) do that.  

Windows 7 disabled some abilities and one of them is Personalization Menu

These are feature disabled in Starter Edition :

  • Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the “Windows Basic” or other opaque themes. It also means you do not get Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek.
  • Personalization features for changing desktop backgrounds, window colors, or sound schemes.
  • The ability to switch between users without having to log off.
  • Multi-monitor support.
  • DVD playback.
  • Windows Media Center for watching recorded TV or other media.
  • Remote Media Streaming for streaming your music, videos, and recorded TV from your home computer.
  • Domain support for business customers.
  • XP Mode for those that want the ability to run older Windows XP programs on Windows 7.
