Changing Your Desktop Picture
Every time you sit down in front of your Mac, you’re looking at your desktop—or, more specifically, at the picture displayed on it. Why not have some fun with it? You can change the desktop picture any time you like, using any photo, cartoon, or other graphic that catches your fancy.
Choose Apple menu, System Preferences.
Click the Desktop & Screen Saver icon to see your choices.
Click the Desktop button.
Click a folder and an image from within the folder to apply that image to the desktop.
