How can I change my desktop backgrown?

How can I change my desktop background?


My computer jumps sometimes, why?


Also, it runs slow and says it has 50-70% usage of memory when it is sitting idle, why?

that computer comes with windows 7 starter which does not allow you to change the desktop background out of the box. there is theme manager software that you can download to enable you to change the background though. one example is stardock my colors theme manager.

I downloaded Personalization Panel so I could change my background as well as change the color and transparency of the taskbar.  You can even download themes to use on it.
