Our keyboarding teacher says that if we figure out how to change our desktop background, we can keep it that way. Nobody has figured it out and all of the computers are stuck on the default picture. When you try to go to Display, a message comes up saying it has been disabled by the administrator. How do I change the desktop background?

Come on! You have to accept the challenge instead of taking the easy way out by asking for the solution in this forum. The answer is right in front of you. LOL.

I'm only asking if anybody knew how to do it, Ron. Everybody's already given up on trying to change their background, so I though somebody on this site would know.

Also, thank you vip3r for the suggestion, but all of the image search engines have been blocked from our school. You've given me an idea though. I know where the desktop background pictures that are already saved on the computer are, so I'll try doing the set as background thing on one already on the computer.

I would really like to know how to enable the Display thing.

Have they blocked google completely ? Cause if not you can use the google translator and might be able to by-pass it to search for images.

OK. Then I'll tell you that I know how to do it since this answers your question as quoted here.

i have the same problem exept my school is a tech based school and they have disabled right clicking on the desktop and i cant do as vip3r suggested and right click the picture and set as wallpaper because that option is disabled but i am able to use search engines unlike mudkipboy and there is no option in the display settings in control panel.

but if you are able to right click on the desktop do that and click properties and one of the tabs should be the desktop wallpaper.

Micro your issue is different as the school has disabled the ability to do what you are asking.
We here at GTG cannot assist in bypassing any security setup by the school.
This is including but not limited to the changing of Wallpaper as you have requested.
If you have any questions please pm a Moderator or Admin and ask them to look at this topic and they can answer your questions.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

I remember at my school, you could be able to do it by saving your picture into My Pictures then right clicking it.

I had a lot of fun bypassing the system with hex editors and proxies

But all that's been changed now, the technicians can even change everyone's wallpaper to advertise a school play etc...

Fun fun times

This topic is a few years old already.

If a network administrator has placed restrictions on what you can do on your computer, then we will not assist you to bypass the restrictions here at Geeks to Go.

Perhaps it might be a better idea to concentrate on your studies instead. :)
