While attempting to customize my desktop display I am unable to assign a photo from file (jpeg) to be used as wallpaper. I can assign screensavers or change colors or any other display function but the prompt buttons to browse wallpaper options do not light up. I have been able to do this previously but not now. :whistling:

Hi, welcome to this site
remember we are working blind so bare with us
to help others reply to your question
if you haven't mentioned it yet:
- what model of computer
- what os, XPpro or home
- how old is it

sorry, not quite clear here
- what are your photos associated with at the moment
(for example 'windows picture and fax viewer' or something else)
- are you saying that if you do the below, the promp does not open or that this one picture does not work

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste this in slot: desk.cpl @0,0
- press: enter
- click: browse
- find photo
- click: OK
- click: apply
