Unable to change your Wallpaper Style

Scenario : Your desktop is stuck on a tiled image and you are unable to revert back.

Solution : That sure can be a Pain. You have tried everything to revert it back and yet you are unable to get it right. This happened to a client of mine and i tried various ways to revert back but it would not budge and then it struck me that maybe i can use regedit to set it right and here’s what i found.

For doing this : Go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the below registry path :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\

Now, check the String values “WallpaperStyle” and “TileWallpaper” and right-click to modify their values as in table below:

Center Tile Stretch
WallpaperStyle 0 0 2
TileWallpaper 0 1 0

Do Note that this changes will take effect after a restart or logoff.
