We All Like A Little Of Our Own Personality In Our Surroundings!


We all like a little of our own personality in our surroundings, at home and at work. Microsoft Windows XP makes it easy to personalize your computer. Add color, patterns, pictures, and even sounds to enhance your screen's appearance. Customize your mouse to make it easier to control. Set up your computer to load favorite programs automatically so they're ready when you are. And more. Personalizing your PC is one of the fun things you can do with your computer. You'll also increase your work efficiency and enjoy computing more!


Here's an easy way to start: Customize your desktop's background! You can repaint it any color of the rainbow, or fill it with a pattern, image, or favorite photo. Windows XP contains a selection of backgrounds to choose from. You can also capture photos and other graphics on the Web. Here's how to give your desktop a fresh look:


Customize your desktop's background!


1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.


2. Click Appearance and Themes.


3. Under Pick a task, click Change the desktop background.


4. On the Desktop tab, do one or more of the following:


- In the Color box, select a color.

- In the Background list, click a background picture. In the Position list, click Center, Tile, or Stretch to define how your picture will be displayed.

- Click Browse to search for a background picture in other folders or on other drives. You can use files with the following extensions: .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .dib, .png, or .htm. In the Position list, click Center, Tile, or Stretch to define how your picture will be displayed, and then click OK or Apply.

- If you want to use a picture from a Web site, on the site, right-click the image, and then click Set as Desktop Background.


To see a colored background you must select none from the Background drop-down menu. Also, if you choose an .htm document as your background picture, the Position options are unavailable; instead, the .htm document automatically stretches to fill the entire background.
