Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do you have administrative rights to this computer? It is possible that someone in your organization’s IT group applied a Group Policy to disable this activity. Can you copy another image onto the current desktop image and see if it is viewable?

***********************
is there a group policy in place set to prevent this? Local or domain group policy can prevent users from changing the background. Display settings are user/control panel/display settings

    If you are unaware of a local or group policy in your organization, it is possible a user applied a local regedit. Check these keys: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoActiveDesktopChanges"=hex:00,00,00,01 "NoActiveDesktop"=dword:00000001 "NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000 "ClassicShell"=dword:00000001 "NoThemesTab"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] "NoDispAppearancePage"=dword:00000001 "NoColorChoice"=dword:00000001 "NoSizeChoice"=dword:00000001 "NoDispBackgroundPage"=dword:00000001 "NoDispScrSavPage"=dword:00000001 "NoDispCPL"=dword:00000001 "NoVisualStyleChoice"=dword:00000001 "NoDispSettingsPage"=dword:00000001 "NoDispScrSavPage"=dword:00000001 "NoVisualStyleChoice"=dword:00000001 "NoSizeChoice"=dword:00000001 "SetVisualStyle"=- [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop] "NoChangingWallPaper"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] "NoDispCPL"=dword:00000001
