have just upgraded from win95 to win2000 pro - but cannot
access the settings on the background tab of display properties,
hence cannot alter the wallpaper - all other tabs are fine?
Not life threatening but still annoying - Cheers SteveC

Is it even showing the background tab?

Usually that setting is in hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\windows\current version\policies\system.

See if there is a value there that says anything about the background.

Also, check the the hkey_users\default at the same location to see.

Are you on a domain? Check to see that there is not a policy in place to prevent the changing of the desktop. I have such a policy in place for some of our computers.
