  2. Changing the background in Windows 10 from picture foders created on the hard drive?

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in response



    I would suggest you to try the following steps:






    • Open Desktop Background by right clicking on the desktop clicking Personalization

    • Click the picture or color that you want to use for your desktop background.

    • If the picture you want to use isn't in the list of desktop background pictures, click an item in the Picture location list to see other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer.
      When you find the picture that you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background.




    Hope this helps.
