When I bought my new netbook few months ago it never occured to me to change the desktop backgroud or shall I say customize it...Just recently I wanted to change it and now realizing that Windows 7 starter version don't let you change background just that easy compare to XP and previous versions....I can upgrade my operatng system for that purpose or I can somehow install a program to do the trick. Like usual, I was using the google search and there. I just found the trick to my problem. I installed Oceanis Change Background Windows 7. It worked for my netbook.
