    Setting Desktop with One Image from Theme


    Hello All,

    With Windows 7 I had the ability to go into the Personalization settings and uncheck all of the images within a Microsoft Theme (such as "Waterfalls" or "Beaches") that I did not want to see. This gave me the ability to choose just one image from a theme to set as a permanent desktop background.

    This menu was found by right-clicking on the particular theme I had chosen. In Windows 10 that menu is gone....

    Therefore the themes just continue going from one image to the next and I have no control over which images I want, setting a timeframe for them to change (Used to have options such as 1 hour, 6 hours, 24 hours etc...), or the ability to customize the desktop background in the way I want.

    Is this a Windows 10 design flaw or am I missing something? Why am I no longer able to customize a desktop background theme and choose 1 image anymore?

    Thanks,
    Katie

    Hello Katie,

    The old menu can be brought back:
    'Personalize (classic)' context menu - Add in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Cheers!
