Set as desktop background

  Fritzman 23:50 18 Feb 05

I've changed my desktop background from time to time using a photo from 'my pictures'by right clicking and selecting 'Set as Desktop background'. Now for some reason it doesn't work.I don't get any response when I select 'Set as Desktop background'. I have to go into Control panel appearance and seclect the picture from 'my pictures' folder. Any idea why the easier option is no longer available??

If you view you "My Pictures" folder using filmstrip or thumbnails the option should be there , however if you view the folder tiles icons list or details the option will not be there , have you changed the view perhaps ?
