Using the desktop wallpaper as the Start Screen background in Windows 8.1

One of the limitations in Winos 8 was that we could not set our desired wallpaper/background to the new start screen. Instead we had to select with some images/designs Microsoft has provided by default.

With the release of Windows 8.1, Microsoft has included an option where we can have our desktop wallpaper as the start screen background. To enable this option there are 2 methods

Method 1

1) Right click on the task bar and select properties

1-2  

2) In the properties Taskbar and Navigation properties window, click the navigation tab and check the “Show my desktop background on Start” option and click OK

1-3 

Method 2

1) On the start screen charms bar, select the settings charm

2-1

2) Click Personalize

2-2

3) Select the wallpaper

  1. I won’t tell you anything new, but it is the same in any other field.
    You would think history teaches us anything, but alas.
    Hate all you want but the world changes, and we have no control over it.
    For instance, imagine Barack had any balls to put Putin to his place, but it seems like it’s never happening, welcome third world war.
    A truly inspiring post, thanks!
