    Can't change my desktop background

    This is complicated.

    My colleague has pranked me at work, by somehow fixing my desktop background so that I can't change it.

    I'm running W10 32bit home edition.

    I've tried gpedit.msc - not available on home version.

    I've managed to change it to a solid colour, but i can't change the picture.

    Any help gratefully received.
