Another problem that occurs while changing the background is that you cannot properly utilize the stretch settings of Windows 7. This feature would help to make a picture fit the screen. Another problem is that sometimes you cannot customize the desktop background properties.
Causes and symptoms
In some cases, the Windows 7 operating system cannot support certain image types. So, you cannot change or set up the pictures of this file type. This is because of some of the settings that you make in the background properties of the control panel. If you have any corrupted video driver, then also you cannot change the wallpapers. If your operating system is infected by any virus or other malware, you would not be able to change the settings or pictures in the background.
We can solve the background problems through several methods. Proper changing in the ‘Appearance and Personalization’ settings in the control panel would help you to set any type of images. If you have any corrupted video driver, reinstalling the driver would solve the problem. Reinstallation of the Windows 7 operating system would not resolve the issue. You have to reinstall that particular corrupted driver. If the problem is due to any malware attack, you can customize your background after the proper removal of the malware.
