Using Images On The Net As Background (desktop) Images

When I see a pic I like on the net. I right click it and set as background (wallpaper). My question is sometimes the pic is out of focus and not a sharp image. Does anyone know how to fix this? I am computer illiterate so I'm asking to please be specific in directions.

What has happened is that the picture is smaller than the screen of your PC- one of two things would need to be done

Either: You have the picture the same size and not stretched- You do this by right-clicking on the desktop and going to properties and choosing how the item displays(stretch, tiled, center)

OR: You change the resolution on your pc to something smaller - right click on the desktop, choose properties and go to the advanced tab and change the resolution to 800x600 or smaller than what you have.

For changing resolution-- … ution-win-xp.htm

Hope that helps

If your photo is blurry it's because the photo you've chosen is not high-resolution enough to be stretched to fill your screen. Most online photos are very low resolution, so they will be very blurry when enlarged, sorry to say.
