Losing my wallpaper in windows 7

Using Windows 7 french version.

I keep losing my wallpapers but not always. With some pics there are no problems but with others yes, they disappear after shuting down my computer. When I start a new session the next day, the wallpaper I chose is gone !

How come ?

  1. Are you using the RC still?
  2. Hi macareno_ca,

    Do you happen to be using Windows 7 Starter? If so, the Starter edition comes with one desktop background, which can't be changed or customized.

    No. Home edition.

    But I think I found the reason for this problem : When I click on a pic I might want to use as a wallpaper, I double clic on it
    and my favorite program ( Photofiltre ) opens up and shows the picture. Then I set it as the wallpaper. Windows 7 doesn't
    like that.

    If I right click on the pic and set it as the wallpaper from there, it remains. That is what I do now on.

    Thanks for helping out !
