The Acer Aspire One is a brand of low cost, small notebook computer, commonly called a netbook. As of 2009, the Acer Aspire One comes with Windows 7. Prior to 2009, the Aspire One came with Windows XP. All of the Acer Aspire One computers have a 1,024 pixel by 600 pixel screen resolution, and any background images you choose should be set at those dimensions.

Windows 7

  • Click on the "Start" button and select "Control Panel."

  • Enter "Desktop Background" into the search box.

  • Click on the link that says "Change Desktop Background."

  • Select the picture you want to use as your desktop background. If you have another picture that is not showing up, select "Browse." Navigate to the picture you want.

  • Double click on the picture. This will select it as the desktop background. You'll be presented with options to resize or crop the image to fit the screen display if it is not 1024 pixels by 600 pixels.
