I used to be able to place a picture on desktop by merely right- clicking a picture and it would enable me to select the above from the dropdown list. I have tried it with png, jpg, all to no avail.
"Set as Desktop Picture"no longer on dropdown list

From where you select the picture? from which folder or drive?
Try the following steps:
Go into the Registry Editor and check that there is not a key called 'NoChangingWallpaper' in either of the following locations. If there is, delete it and restart.
- Click Start
- Click Run
- Type regedit
- Click OK
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop
Try resetting the Windows theme:
- Right-click your desktop
- Click Properties
- Click the Themes tab
- Select Windows XP from the list of themes
- Click Apply
- Restart your computer
Failing that, try an sfc /scannow to check for any corrupt system files they may be preventing the desktop wallpaper from automatically refreshing.
Pop in your XP installation media and cancel out of the installation wizard
Type sfc /scannow
When the box disappears, restart your computer
If this does not work, try a system restore.
