Windows 7 Starter Edition is the light version of Windows, aimed mainly at netbooks. It lets you run Windows 7 with low hardware configurations and less hassle, but in exchange for that it has some serious limitations, like running a maximum of three applications at a time or not being able to customize the desktop background image. While you can’t do anything about the former, you can at least skip the latter with Starter Background Changer.
This simple app enables you to customize the desktop wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter Edition, just like in the others. First of all, you need to install it on your system. The installation process is in French, but it’s really simple: just keep on clicking Suivant (“Next”) on all the steps, and then Démarrer (“Start“) on the last one. Starter Background Changer will perform the necessary changes in Windows Registry to let you change the wallpaper and add the Personalize option to the Desktop context menu.
When you click that option, Starter Background Changer will launch. The program lets you customize four elements in Windows 7 Starter Edition (wallpapers, colors, sounds and screensavers), each of them represented with a button at the bottom of the interface. To choose a new wallpaper, simply click the appropriate button and select the image of your choice. Easy as pie!
