    Hi Dave,

    Assuming you use Windows....

    Have the PC show your desktop and press the PrtSc (Print Screen) button on your keyboard. This takes a snapshot of the Windows System. Next go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / Paint and paste the snapshot into a new canvas. Finally save image as jpg. If you're using an old version of windows you may only get the option of bmp.

    :D

    *EDIT* Oh I almost forgot:

    My personal home laptop:

    You can get loads of widescreen wallpaper online.

    Just google 1280x800 desktop or something similar in google images and you'll fine tonnes mate.
