    Hello DR3WST3R,

    It sounds like you may have the Remove background images (where available) box checked in Ease of Access Center. Unchecking it and applying should sort this for you if so. :)

    Background - Show Image or Solid Color in Windows 8 or 8.1

    You're most welcome. :)

    If you installed any 3rd party all-in-one tweaking utility type programs, it could have easily set it.

    Otherwise, I suppose it may have been set by mistake.
