Hello fellow members, :-)

I am running Windows XP Home Edition. I am NOT connected to any network.
I am NOT a computer expert!!

Bitmap (.bmp) files do not reappear as wallpaper on my desktop when I turn
on my computer. Bitmap files do appear on the desktop when I select them
every time, no problem. But they do not REAPPEAR as wallpaper when I NEXT
turn on my computer. WHY IS THIS?

One solution that works is when I open the Bitmap file in a photo editing
program and save the file as a JPEG (.jpg) file. This is bloody annoying!!

1. What is causing this problem to happen?

2. How can I get Bitmap (.bmp) files to reappear as wallpaper on my desktop
when I next turn on my computer, without having to save them as a JPEG (.jpg)
file?

Thank you for your help!!

Cheers, Techno Phobe.
