    Picks the picture she wants, from photo`s etc.... Right clicks on the one she wants and it comes up with a list and on that list is "Set as Desktop"... clicks on that and the picture is there..

    But every so often it goes black... and she has to do it again... :Blush::Sad:

    Sound like it keeps dropping off and sliding under the keyboard! :ROFLMAO:

    Seriously though, back up the computer before you do anything else, then move the photo to the main c: drive and try selecting it from there as the wallpaper and see if that sorts it out - it could be that the original folder in which the photo is stored is corrupt or something like that.
