I had this problem. What ever I did, nothing worked. Changes in the Settings didn't stick. Then I right clicked an image and chose it as a background image. After that it all works fine in the Settings too. :-)
This tip helped, in that it got me to a place in Personalization that looked a lot more like the Win 7 interface. Anyway, when I changed the Picture Location from Solid Colors to My Pictures, that got me into my picture files. There I had to right-click on a photo and select Set for Monitor 1 or Set for Monitor 2 because I have two monitors. After doing that, the background changed to the desired photo and I was all set!
Now i have problem

Hi all. I can't seem to find how to have a straight black desktop background. The closest is a medium grey. I just want a straight black if possible... Can you please point me in the right direction?

Anyone else having the same...
