Windows 7 Starter: Can not change Wallpaper

August 2016


  • I just bought a netbook with Windows 7 Starter and I can not change my wallpaper, you have solutions to this problem?
  • When I click on an image to set it as wallpaper, nothing happens!


  • Microsoft has removed this feature from the Windows 7 Starter.
  • You must use specialized software like Starter Background Changer(fr website) to change the wallpaper.

Note that

  • The program does not work with some PC of the Asus brand. On these system the eeeDocking program (installed by default) hinders the proper functioning of Starter Background Changer.
  • The software displays a page of advertising, some anti-virus (Trend Micro, Kaspersky ,...) see this as malicious code.
    • Thanks to jee pee for this tip.
