The desktop is the first place where we land after starting our desktop PC or laptop. The desktop contains shortcuts to the programs on your computer and the files which you use most often. On the desktop, you can change the wallpaper as well as add or remove gadgets, in Windows 7.
Sometimes, when you install an unknown program on your computer, it breaks your desktop and changes the settings, too.
