Microsoft no longer updates Windows 7, but there is a problem: In the latest Windows 7 update, released on January 14, Microsoft made a "mistake." Your desktop wallpaper has turned black.
Microsoft he says that this bug will be fixed - but only for companies that will pay for extended security updates.
So if you are a regular user, do not expect Microsoft to fix the "error". Below we will see how you can bypass the black screen that Microsoft "wore" you.
The error is in the selection of the wallpaper "Stretch". To skip it you just have to choose an alternative from the existing ones: Fill, Fit, Tile, or Center.
To do this, right-click on your desktop and select "Personalize". Click "Desktop Background" and select an alternative from the drop-down box. Anything other than "Stretch".
You can also simply choose a wallpaper that matches the resolution of your screen. It is the best choice for image quality, as you will have an image of suitable size for your screen. It should not be stretched or centered.
For example, if you have a screen at 1920 × 1080 pixels, look for a wallpaper for your desktop with these dimensions. Right-click on your desktop and select "Screen Resolution" to see the current screen resolution.
If you like an image that is small and definitely needs to be stretched (stretched), stretch the image with an image editing application. Even Microsoft Paint, available on Windows 7, can resize an image.
These nice ones.
If there are any of you who are considering removing the bug (KB4534310) update, we do not recommend it. This update contains important security updates for Windows 7. So it would be much better if you fix the "bug" instead of removing a critical security update.
If you avoid the "Stretch" option, you will not face any problem. Stretch is bad for image quality anyway.
In Windows 7, the black wallpaper may also be due to the use of a copy of Windows 7 that is not authentic.
If Windows 7 cannot be enabled by Microsoft, it displays a blank black image on the desktop.
