    Right click your desktop screen and select Personalize and it will let you select a picture to use as the desktop.
    After you select the picture check out the Chose a Fit option to adjust the way the picture shows.

    How small do you want it? Any image or shortcut to an image that you put on the Desktop will display a thumbnail of its image as its icon. This is a shortcut to the image I used to make my avatar.
