This can be caused by Group Policy, is it a home machine, if so, then another user (if there is one) may have changed this setting accidently with some software. Get FreshUI its free from www.freshdevices.com it is a tinkering tool but by ticking the box under Prevent wallpaper change then unticking it, you might be able to reverse this situation

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
