  1. Desktop Backgrounds


    Hi Group, When I choose "Personalize", I choose "slideshow", browse, The folder I choose appears to have no images in it. But if I navigate to the same folder normally, all the images are there. Any ideas? Thanks. Windows 10.

    :)

    Lost desktop background

    I did a Search & Distroy spyware scan the other day, and one of the suggested "fixes" said something about removing Active Desktop. Like the muppet I am I clicked yes and am now without a desktop background picture.

    Does anyone have an idea how to reverse this? If I try to select a picture it's simply not added as a background.

  4. Desktop Backgrounds

    After installing the updates, desktop background pictures dissapeared.

    Hi Lucky,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    This type of issue might occur because of some missing, corrupt or damaged files in your system.

    Initially, I suggest you to try the below method and later you can try to set the desktop background and check.

    Method 1: I suggest you to run System File Checker, which will check your system for missing, corrupt or damaged files and attempt to fix them.

    Please refer the article on “How to run System File Checker” and check if that helps.

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    Method 2: DISM:

    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:


    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.

    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Now, follow the below steps to set desktop background.

    • Right click on your desktop background and click on Personalize.
    • Click on Background list box and select pictures.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
