Thank you for using
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help.
Here are the steps to change the desktop background image:

- Select the 'Windows' Start symbol (bottom-left)
- Select the "Settings" icon (looks like a gear)

- Select "Personalization"

- Select "Background"

-- Below the 'Preview' area, there's a drop-down entitled "Background" - you can choose between 'Picture', 'Solid color' or 'Slideshow'. If you choose Picture or Slideshow, you can either choose one of the 'built in' images, or click the "Browse" button to select from other images on your computer.

This is all you need to change the image on the desktop background.
