    Metro UI Desktop entry...


    Would appreciate some assistance.

    Have a tablet with Windows 8.1 installed. In the Metro UI there is an entry for the Desktop.

    The picture on the actual Desktop is a winter scene, however, the picture for the Desktop on the Metro UI is a yellow abstract graphic that I do not like.

    How can the Metro UI picture be changed to show the Winter scene on the actual Desktop?

    Can't seem to get a handle on this one.

    Thanks for your help!
