When setting my desktop background from a photo in my pictures on set I got back to my desktop to see its magnified to the extent that some of the picture is missing its as if its a zoomed in version . I have a iphone and have Icloud photo stream etc. if I select a photo from photo stream that's very enlarged set I know some conflicts exist with windows and the iphone photos is this just another conflict ? . any help please ?

Hi The 'zoom' effect you have got will be (most probably) because of the setting in the Personalization window.

So, go back to Personalization window (Right click on desktop), look at the bottom of the window and you should see your picture towards the left, with 'Desktop Background' in blue. Click on this then, again, bottom left you will see 'Picture Position'. Choose either Fit or Fill and see if either of them suit you. You have most likely got it currently on Tile or Centre.

Hope this helps you?
