    Personalized desktop image...


    Under/In past versions of Windows you could select (create) an image which could be used as your desktop image. My wife had a collage (ok the spelling please) of our grandchildren. I have not been able to find an directions (clear cut directions anyhow) as to how I can set her desktop (back) to the collage. Directions on how this can be done, please?
