    Facing problem to change the background in Mac

    I have a Mac which runs with Lion OS and I am trying to change the background in my Mac to a picture which I wanted to but even after changing it nothing happens it just the same as before. What should be done for this problem? Have anyone came across this issue before? Kindly advice me to fix it.

    This issue may occur if the preference file that manages the setting is corrupted. Now to resolve the problem just follow the below mentioned points,

    STEP 1: Open the User Library folder. Go to finder application -> Click on Go and press the Alt key while clicking on Go which should show up one more new option called “Library”.
    STEP 2: Select that -> Open preferences folder.

    STEP 3: Search for the com.apple.desktop.plist file and delete it.

    STEP 4: Now restart your Mac once or simply logout and login and check changing the background which should be working now without any issues.
