I am having trouble changing how the wallpaper is displayed on my desktop, from stretch to center.

I go to: Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Personalization > Desktop Background, and change the "Picture position" from 'stretch' to 'center'. When I click Save Changes, the change is not made and when I go back to fix it, the option is reverted back to stretch instead of center like how I changed it.

The reason for this is because the wallpaper is slightly larger than my desktop size, so when it is set to stretch, it compresses the image and distorts it. The only way I can temporarily fix this is to set an image on the internet as a background but it eventually reverts to stretch when I restart or log out.

Is there a way to fix this little nuisance? Thanks
