Windows 10: Non standard wallpaper background colors

    Non standard wallpaper background colors


    Hi guys,
    I'm a photographer and work mostly with black and white images. I took the jump from win7 to win10 today and in setting my wallpaper as "centered" (not fill or stretch etc) I am faced with not being able to choose an appropriate background color to go "behind" the wallpaper.
    How can I get a simple black or white background color to go behind / around my wallpaper image. There are plenty reds, purples, greens and blues, but precious few neutrals.
    I want to be able to select background color by RGB code or a 24-bit palette.
    thanks
    Guy

    Hello Guy, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, a workaround would be to use mspaint.exe with the image and a background color you want, then use that custom image for your desktop background.

The Win 10 background colors are very limited, I want a dark blue background. Is there a way to change that?
