There are three different files, in both PC and
Macintosh formats, to choose from below. The one you choose will
depend on the screen resolution of your computer monitor. If you
have a PC, go to the Control panels folder. You can locate this
folder by clicking on the START button located in the bottom left
hand side of your screen and going to SETTINGS. Inside the Control
Panel folder you will find an icon named DISPLAY. Click on that
and go to the tab marked SETTINGS. You will see a slider bar named
Desktop Area or Resolution. That will give you the screen resolution

If you are using a Macintosh computer, go to the
Control Panel, located under the Apple symbol at the top left of
the screen. In the Control Panel folder, you will see an item called
Monitors and Sound. Select this and it will show you, under the
monitor selection, the screen resolution you are using.
Downloading the file
Once you have determined the screen resolution you
are using, you now need to download the file to your computer. Click
on the File link that lists the format (PC or Mac) and the resolution
you are using. This should bring up a window asking you where you
want to save the file. Save it to somewhere you can remember so
you can load it as your computer wallpaper file. If it does not
ask you, then your browser has a default folder it saves all downloads
into. The file should be in that folder.
Installing the file - PC
Once the file is downloaded, select DISPLAY in the Control Panel's folder. Go to the BACKGROUND tab. In the window,
you will see the WALLPAPER list. Under that list, you will see BROWSE.
Select BROWSE and locate the image you downloaded. Select the image
and in the BACKGROUND select CENTER. Select APPLY or OK, and this
should set your new desktop wallpaper.
Installing the file - Macintosh
System 8.0 or later:
Once the file is downloaded, in the Control Panels
folder select Desktop Pictures. This will open a panel that will
let you select the file to use. Click SELECT and, in the popup window,
select the file you downloaded and close the window. Save the new
settings. This should position the new CALIPSO image as your
desktop picture. If you are using a system previous to 8.0, please
consult your systems administrator.
