My WIN2K desktop is solid black.
When I choose Properties/Settings/advanced there are no choices for the background - no themes. no windows standard, etc.

Can you help me?

I don't know if this will work for you but I change my desktop background several times every day.

Just pick out a picture that you like, right click on it, and then click on set as desktop background.
This picture can easily be changed whenever you click on a different picture.

Some days I have the sky and clouds, some days pictures of my beautiful colorful flower gardens, some days family pictures etc.

Let me know if this works. it should.
:tazz:

P.S. Do you know if it is ok to answer messages if we are not a qualified member of this GEEKS TO GO expert team?

well i cut this out to help u out from an idea posted by one of the admins, try it it

worked for me it should work 4 u

Right click on http://www.greyknigh...pairDesktop.reg and download

that file. Double click on it and click on Yes when it asks you if you want to merge

it into the registry. Once that's done, restart your computer.

all the best
