Windows 7 Desktop Background Won't Stay Stretched


Extraordinary Member
My minor annoyance is that my Desktop Background photo changes from “Fill” or “Stretch” to “Center.” This is an ongoing problem. If I go thru Customize and reset it to Fill after a while it goes back to Center. I have tried a variety of photos and all seem to do it.

I’m using a Gateway Laptop NV series, 17-inch display, 64-bit, screen resolution 1600x900 (recommended). Windows 7 Home.


You might check through your installed software for anything that may have the ability to tweak or alter the desktop. This type of issue of commonly fixed by removing any 3rd party utilities or software causing it.
