What is the correct term for the background behind the icons? Is it called the desktop? And yet, is the graphic (even if a plain background) called the “wallpaper”? Or, “wallpaper” may be the Apple Macintosh term - since I’ve used both systems.
If that was too easy a question, how about explaining this one: When I press Ctrl-Alt-Delete, the background (desktop, etc.) turns into a ugly red image - looks like a mushroom cloud as seen from the top and colorized in fire-engine red - in very poor resolution. What the heck is that, and can I change it? Why should the PC need a different background when I press Ctrl-Alt-Delete? It could be a portrait of all-hell breaking loose!
If it matters, my desktop image (i.e.: wallpaper, background) is a customized photo of my own. And, I WAG the PC cannot access the photo’s file when I press Ctrl-Alt-Delete. Still, couldn’t the default background simply be some solid color, perhaps? - Jinx
