Now press the Shift and F10 keys together.
A display menu should appear on your screen.
Now press the r key and the Personalise menu opens.
Now press the Tab key until you focus on the Background drop down box. Press the down arrow until the solid colour option is selected.
Press the Spacebar to confirm your selection.
Press the TAB key once and then use your arrow keys to select the colour that you want for your background.
Once you have chosen your colour press the Alt and F4 keys and you will taken back to your desktop.
And there you have it. A fairly simple procedure to change the background on your Windows 10 laptop or PC from a photo or ornate pattern to a solid colour.
