XP User accounts cannot change desktop

  Wrighty 18:33 22 Oct 08

Hi there,

Using XP with 2 user accounts in opertation. However on the second user account I cannot change the desktop background. In fact the tab for this is not shown when you click on properties. It is there on the main account.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Has the 2nd account got administrator permissions if not go to control panel/user accounts click on account to change/change account/administrator

Maybe you have to be an administrator before you can do this.but doubtful.
