    The desktop background is also referred to as 'wallpaper' and it can be changed as follows:

    Control Panel> Display> Desktop tab> Background section> browse to the folder that has your pictures (My Pictures)> select the picture you want on the desktop> Open> OK> Apply> OK.

    You can do this whenever you want. Your monitor screen size may may a difference as to how the picture displays.
