Do you mean the desktop display picture? Open charms and settings and select personalise.

Hi I had similar issues getting to find my way around Windows 8 while setting up a new machine for one my friends. I came across several (free) pdf ebook downloads of regular books

So, may I suggest you open this Google site and find an ebook pdf that you like and just work your way through. That's what I did and actually got on with Windows 8 very well.

I did install Classic Shell which Jock1e has recommended as I felt it would be easier for my friend as she was previously using XP. Anyway, apparently 8.1 is due out soon which is very much the same as Classic Shell.

Good luck, stick with it and you'll be fine :)
