When I was mentioning in comments on this meme that my desktop was boring, this is what I was talking about. A few months before I started blogging, I had my computer radically upgraded and the man who did it also reinstalled Windows and I couldn't find the desktop that I had been using anywhere. I guess I was being a bit stupid, but I just couldn't figure out how to get it back. This meme made me renew my search and I finally figured out how to get back the desktop that I had been using before.
This is my favorite image of the ones which came with Windows and the one that I had been using for a long time. Miss Peach told me how easy it was to use any picture I had on my hard drive as a desktop, so I decided to do a little experimenting. It didn't work quite the way she said, because of the program in which I store my photos, but I figured it out.
This is what my desktop looks like now. I think I'll keep it for a while. Thanks, TT, for tagging me for this meme. It finally got me to do something about my boring desktop.
Here are the rules for the meme:
Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop.It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.
Here’s how you can do a screen capture:
1.Go to your desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).
Mommy bean note: On a laptop you use the Fn + prt sc keys then paste it into a graphics program.
2.Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.
3.Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop if you want. You can explain why you prefer such a look or why it is full of icons. Things like that.
4.Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktops as well.
5.Add your name to the list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.
