  1. Desktop Background Randomly changing


    My Desktop Background keeps changing from the Wallpapers file I choose to a desktop background where it only shows a few of my pictures. All of your previous answers were for older systems and it seems over 50 people have asked similar question. Can we provide a step by step fix for most current version of Microsoft please?

    :)
