    The Chromebook OS came on the Chromebook that I was using when I sent that picture. That's the machine i use most of the time now on this forum.

    I like changing my backgrounds frequently. I download pictures that I like and then use them as backgrounds.

    Me too, one of my favorite features of Windows 7 was the native ability to do a wallpaper slideshow.

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/ Windows 8.1 64 bit

    On my Windows 7 machine I have a few thousand wallpaper photos and have them as a slide show but on this Notebook running Windows 8 at present I'm using Bing so the photo is whatever their photo of the day is.
    This is today.

    I use grandkids for desktop background in 7 and 8. I do not want to spend the money on principle for the metro is background and tiles. Because I think Microsoft should supply more of what they have for free like they do on the desktop backgrounds We should not have to pay for it nor try to script them

    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).

    Last week I removed the CP from the other laptop, and replaced it with a sys-image of its previous W7 setup. That went without a hassle, so today I pulled the DP off the old desktop box (P4 2.8Ghz/1gig RAM/256mb Geforce 5700). The DP has been on this box for over a year, and was also replaced with a sys-image of the box's previous setup. Yes, boys and girls, I have my Vista Ultimate setup running again!! Unfortunately it is a basic 'cleanskin' image, so I must now install my programs again from scratch. But it was like meeting an old friend you haven't seen for some time. Lot to do tho, you'll notice the Service Packs aren't even installed yet. Anyway, here it is. Wenda.

I don't know what to call the old desktop since the tile version is called Metro. But when working on the old desktop version and you want to clear everything off the screen and just view the desktop, where is the button for this? XP had this button, but cant find it on W8.
