I don't have any computer running Windows 7 Starter, but it looks like this guide should work.

Yeah, I already tried that and it didnt work...
When I right click a picture I get the choice to "Set as background" but the background doesnt switch...
I have 2 netbooks running Win 7 Starter..
Kinda sucks.. would upgrade if they met the minimum requirements, but they dont... :(
Still have my other 2 laptops, and desktops, which is running XP Pro on Desktops, and Win 7 Home Premuim on laptops.. Netbook is just easier away from home...

I don't know what specs your netbooks have, but my Asus 1005HA netbook ran Windows 7 Professional (32 bit version) just fine. Naturally it was slightly slower, but it wasn't too bad.

I never did a comparison, or shecked to see what the minimum requirments were.. They might be able to run Win7 32Bit...
Will have to look and see what the minimum requirments are for win 7 32Bit.. and then see if my netbooks will meet those requirments.. The desktop wallpaper is not the only issue I have with the starter version..
Thanks for your help!

Wes~
