    Shift desktop background to right of screen


    I've added a new image as a destop background. It does not fill the whole screen, but I want to shift it so that the right edge is pushed up to the right hand side of the screen. I can't find anything in the control panel that allows me to do this, is there a way? If not does anyone know of any 3rd party software that would allow me to do this?

    Thanks for your help

    You could modify the image in an image editor, or Windows Paint for that matter, and create the wallpaper you desire.

    Right click on desktop > Personalization > Desktop Background > there you can set any way you like, Stretch or Fill whole screen.
