    I messed up


    I have 8.1 pro and decided to change wallpaper to something else (UO Sooners) and it didn't work out. it was my background aright but it was blurred. The place I am talking about is where all my personal apps are penned like you would see the on windows 7 desktop. How can I get this back to the original wall paper or desk top?
    Thanks for your help

    Right click > Personalize. There you find all the default wallpapers.

    But you can also make any of your own pictures as a wallpaper. Right click on the picture in the Pictures folder > Set as Wallpaper.
