Please I need help. When I go into display properties and background to
choose a wallpaper, usually you see a preview of the picture in the tiny
computer screen example above that. The jpg pictures are not previewing. The
little screen just stays blank. I read somewhere on here along time ago how
to fix it and did fix it another time. Please help this bugs me silly.

thank you
Denise

Denise,

Do you have Active Desktop enabled? If not then you cannot use jpg images
as wallpaper and can only use bmp images. Have you perhaps disabled AD
using an application such as TweakUI?

>I have no idea if I have active desktop enabled. I had
this problem about a year ago and someone told me what to
do and it fixed it, but I don't remember what it was. I
don't know what TweakUI is either. I was just trying to
preview a picture in another area and it messed up. Can
you please tell me what to do?

Thanks
Denise
