Sometimes when using a theme in Windows, you’d like to select just one picture from that theme as your background. You’d think it would be as simple as clicking on that image and choosing it as your background. It’s not, of course. But it’s still doable.
Here’s how. Right-click on a blank spot on the desktop and choose Personalize from the drop-down menu.
Or open Settings and choose Personalization.
Select Picture from the drop-down menu under Background.
Then click Browse.
Here’s where it feels like it’s getting complicated but it’s just a matter of a few clicks. When (File) Explorer opens, click your main HD (most likely C) and then Users.
Choose your username.
Then click on AppData.
Click Local. (It’s not complicated, but it is click-heavy)
Then choose Microsoft.
Now choose Windows.
Look for the name of the theme you are currently using.
Choose the image you’d like for the background and then Select.
Whew! That was quite a few steps.
