sized for 800x600 screen resolutions. If we have 'em larger, click the link for
the size you need. Right click on the image. If you see the command "Set
As Wallpaper" click that. Even if we've manipulated the browser size, that's
all you have to do, unless you're still running 3.1
If so, Download
the wallpaper to your hard drive Windows folder, usually c:\windows . If
you're using an Active Desktop, Right click on your desktop. Select Properties.
Select the filename you downloaded. In the "Display" box, Click "Center"
clicking doesn't work, you have to convert the file to a .bmp format.
Open the Windows Paint program (under Accessories) and open the
image. Click "Save As" and change the "Save as Type"
box to "24-bit bitmap". Save the in the c:\windows root
directory (assuming c: is your hard drive where Windows is located).
Then, Open the Control Panel and click the "Display" icon.
Click the Background tab. Select your wallpaper.
