I have just received a new pc with Winxp installed. The option to change the wallpaper is not available when I go to properties on the desktop. Any ideas on how to get this option back as the present wallpaper is hideous.
Thanx in advance

Control Panel, Add/Remove Programmes. Click on Add remove Windows Components. Click accessories and utilities. Click details, Click Accessories, Tick Desktop Wallpaper. OK your way out

Curio... The option is already ticked. Looks like some 'Boffin' has gone into the Profile or security set up and disabled the option for changing the wallpaper optio (for some reason)..
