1.] Right click on a empty space on the desktop and click on Personalize.
2.] Click on the Desktop Background link at the bottom of the window.
3.] Click on the drop down arrow menu to select from the list of available picture folder locations, or click on the Browse button to navigate to the picture folder location.

Changing your desktop background in control panel.
Click start.
Click control panel.
Then in the text bar at the top of screen click on the little black arrow to open the drop down menu.
Then select Appearance and Personalization.
Then select change desktop background.
Hope this helps.
