read review on windows 7 starter here

by PurpleSkys In reply to I cannot change the backg ... it sounds like you're stuck with what you have unless you want to purchase another version of windows 7. The starter version doesn't have many options (including the fact that you can not change the desktop backgroud). Also, is this a full sized laptop or a netbook? Everything I've read points to windows 7 starter being the win 7 version for most netbooks.

The 7 Starter Edition is a Bare Bones version of 7 and things like this can not be changed.

PLAGIARISM ALERT !!!! .... [Edited] ..

by OldER Mycroft In reply to how to change the back gr ...

Lifted straight from a graphical instruction page, by copying each of the accompanying captions:

Moreover! Directly above the stolen captions, lies this:
The Windows 7 Starter edition does not include the Personalization features such as the change desktop background option.

This is becoming tedious ~not to mention DANGEROUS for TechRepublic~ because any fool looking for answers on Google will see the plagiarism for themselves and it won't take long for the word to get round!

This has GOT to stop!!
