Tweaking Win 7 Starter's desktop

This morning I tried to change the desktop background of Windows 7 Starter Edition on my new netbook, and discovered it's not a feature of that stripped-down version of the operating system.

That is more a mild annoyance than a deal-breaker, but this amateur photographer likes seeing his work appear on bootup. So I asked my friend Lew Golan, who is a Windows whiz, if there was a workaround.

There certainly is.

I tried it, and it worked, and now a custom desktop background greets me every morning on bootup. There's a slideshow feature, too.

Highly recommended for new netbook users.
