    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.
