Windows 98: Windows Me: Wallpaper is not displayed properly.

    The setting is not reflected when I select 16 x 16 pixels wallpaper such as [Blue Rivets] or [Triangles] and [Stretch] as [Picture Display]. Sometimes it appears scrambled.
    This symptom occurs when the all below condition is covered.
    - [Screen area] in [Display Properties] is set 1024 x 768 pixels or higher.
    - [Picture Display] in [Display Properties] is set as [Stretch].
    - Pixel height of bitmap is saved in less than 16 pixels.
    - Bitmap is saved in 16 bit color.

    Microsoft has confirmed this problem.
    Refer to the following to solve the problem.
    1, Open the bitmap image with [Paint].
    2, Click [Stretch/Skew] in [Image] menu.
    3, Stretch more than 200 % both horizontal and vertical and save it from [File] menu.
    Use above bitmap image.
