I have been trying to change my desktop background from the standard Windows 10--with some scenery wallpaper I found on wallpaper sites. When I download and save as a JPG or PNG then change the wallpaper the images become large and distorted. Example, A scene with snow covered mountains in the background and a body of water in the foreground and looks perfectly clear even when saved to the "Pictures" folder. I right click the image and select "Set As Desktop Background" and it shows up distorted and magnified so as the body of water in the foreground is partially missing and the mountains are closer and distorted. I searched the internet for suggestions and nothing works. One of the suggestions was to do a regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP. Right click DESKTOP New, DEWORD 32bit value. Name the DWORD JPEGImportQuality Press Enter. Double Click the Newly created DWORD then where it says "User Base" select "Decimal" option. change the value 0-100. I made the value 100. From what the suggestion said it was to take the distortion out of it. It didn't. I tried different sceneries and the same thing. If I use what standard Windows 10 images there are they appear normal. I am using Windows 10 2004 OS Build 19041.685. I have an MSI AMD motherboard (A88X-G41) with and AMD W/Graphics Radeon 7 processor. I have tried everything I could find and trial and error with no results. I don't remember having this problem before. I am also in the process of building a new computer and got it out today and tried changing the desktop background with some downloaded images and got the same distortions. Any help would be appreciated.
