customize your desktop (Microsoft Windows)

This week's tip is inspired by hubby and me falling in love with a house about 14 years ago. The house came on the market back in June and last week our (fourth!) offer got accepted. So I might be excused for being a bit obsessed at the moment and wanting to have my dream house as a picture on my computer's desktop. So if you're lucky enough to work somewhere where they allow you to customize your desktop ...

Here's how:

  1. Right-click anywhere on your desktop (where there is no icon).
  2. Select Properties from the dropdown menu.
  3. Click on the Desktop tab.
  4. Click the Browse button.
  5. Navigate to your picture and select it.
  6. Select Stretch from the Position dropdown list.
  7. Click OK.

By the way, when I spoke to my bank manager back in June, one of these teeny tiny Post-its were stuck on her business cards when I dug it out. Probably something I wrote down for myself to remember, but got glued to something else. "Do one thing every day that scares you." it read. Guess placing an offer on a new (business) property is brave enough!? (Brave is one term; others may call it something far less complimentary! ;-)
