    Background Picture went away, won't come back

    I have come to the conclusion W10 is about a year away from a solid product. I think we are all part of Gamma Testing. Here is one of several problems that should not be occurring.

    I set the background picture to the beach scene. It stayed there for about 3 hours. Then the background went to a solid black. If I go back to Background Preview the proper picture is previewed. I can change the solid color to any color by switching to Solid Color and choosing any of the color picks, but no matter how many times I try, reboot, cuss at the screen, I cannot get the background picture to display properly. I can always set the background choice to it, and it shows in the preview, but not as the actual background.

    The picture choice also shows in Themes when I look there. Everyplace but where I want it. On my screen as a background.

    Doing some searching, it appears this problem dates back to W8.

    Hello ARYLIOA,

    You might check using the tutorial to make sure that you have showing your desktop background turned on. :)

    You are right on the money. Thank you.

    This solves my problem. But I am still puzzled about the way it went away. I suppose it must have been pilot-error since I have been digging around in the system for hours.

    Again, thanks for the accurate and rapid response.
