Default Desktop Background?


I have probblems with when i change my desktop background i can't seem to get the background centre (it always seems stretched )

This happens with any background - even windows standard. I have tried to alter it in the option 'how should the picture be positioned' but this has no effect.

Please can u help me?

Have you tried making the picture the same size in pixels as your desktop? it wont need to be stretched then in order to fit. Example if your desktop is say 1280 x 1024 and you put a pic in at 1152 x 864 it's either going to have a border or have to stretch to fit the screen and you'll need to choose to centre it first.
There must be an easy explanation for this cos most pics just fit !
