hi team ive just installed windows vista home preimier


my question how do i get rid of the desktop back ground

i would prefer a plain screen

i can find the option in display properties

like other versions

ime not that impressed with it tho it cost me over $100

xp is still a better sys

but sooner or later xp will be gone

i like ubuntu better than this version

i couldnt afford an excutive version

nor the biz version

so i have to make do with what i can afford

so ijme going to need help i know you have forums for vista

but none cover my Q ON DESKTOP BACKGROUND

Hi Marty, I got Vista Premium about a month ago and surprisingly I like it. :thumbsup:

The "Add/Remove Programs" of previous Windows versions is now "Programs and Features" in Vista. That applet includes "Turn Windows features on or off," which is similar to the previous "Windows components."

Remove Optional and Probably Unnecessary Windows Vista Components

Windows Vista - Default Programs
