On January 14, Microsoft called the end of life for Windows 7, which means it won’t be pushing any updates for this version. However, recently, the Redmond giant has made an addition to its final patch notes KB4534310 update for Windows 7.
There is a background wallpaper bug after installing the update KB4534310. Many users reported that when they use the Stretch option on the background desktop wallpaper, it displays a solid black color. All the editions of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 are affected by the same. Microsoft acknowledges the bug which was caused by the update and updated its patch notes:
We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release, which will be released to all customers running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
However, there is no date provided for the update, which will fix the background wallpaper bug. For now, there is a temporary fix for the issue which are as follows:
- Users can set their custom image to Fill, Fit, Tile, or Center option instead of Stretch.
- Or can try their luck by selecting a custom image that matches the resolution of their desktop.
