    On my 2011 15" Macbook Pro I am having several problems with my desktop picture. First, I am unable to set an image to be a desktop picture from the internet when I double click. Is this normal or is there a way to do it? Also, when I do set a desktop picture sometimes when I shut it down and start it back up, it changes back to the default background and I have to redo my desktop picture. Any help would gladly be appreciated! Thank you!

    same problem at times

    my MacBook Pro is often connected to my LCD TV to display the screen in a larger way...and when i disconnect the HDD cable the same thing happens=the desktop image reverts to the original default. i have read in a few net searches that people are having similar problems with no way to fix.

    if you are using an HDD cable this may also be the source of you problem, not a cure, but at least you know what is causing the problem. hope it helps.
