I have a user who had a previous picture of her dog as the desktop background and it used to fit fine. After getting a new laptop she placed the picture back on and it cuts off the dogs head. How can I get the desktop picture in the background to show all?

    Accepted Solution

    Right-click the desktop and choose Personalize. Then, click "Desktop Background" from the bottom left. In the "Picture Position" drop down try Fill, Fit or Stretch to see which one helps display the image better. The best choice will depend on the screen and picture resolution. See attached screenshot below for an example - Desktop Settings
