Unfortunately, the answer is that you can’t change the background in Windows 7 Starter Edition. This particular edition of Windows 7 was developed specifically to run on lower-powered systems such as netbooks and as a result, includes a limited feature set. In other words, it does not include all the features and capabilities you would expect to find in the Windows operating system. As a result, the ability to change the background was removed in Windows 7 Starter Edition to eliminate any performance issues on lower-powered systems. Considering older Windows operating systems offered this feature with every version, it seems strange Windows 7 Starter Edition would remove the ability to add a photo of your kid to your desktop wallpaper, but that is exactly what Microsoft opted to do in Starter Edition.
