    I have tried a great many times to get a picture on my desktop. Each time I manage to install one, a few minutes later it has disappeared and ben replaced by a a black screen.
    Does anyone have an answer to restore my desktop display to remain permanently?
    Thank you.
    Jean-Pierre.-

    When you select the picture for your background, select only the one file. I suspect that you ended up with a background slideshow where some of the pictures are just black.

    If that does not help, post the Personalization dialog box from your PC - that might give more clues as to the issue.

    Right click on the desktop and select Personalize, at the bottom of the window select Desktop Background. Is the Shuffle box checked? This would cause the desktop picture to change regularly.
