    Solution

    Yes, it is easy. Open up notepad and paste all of this in
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; Add Classic Appearance Settings for Right Click on Desktop
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Appearance]
    "MUIVerb"="Appearance"
    "SubCommands"="Personalize;Wallpaper;Colors;Sounds;Screensaver;Icons"
    "Icon"=hex(2):25,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,72,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,\
      00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,74,00,\

    "DelegateExecute"="{06622D85-6856-4460-8DE1-A81921B41C4B}"
    Then save it to your desktop or somewhere as Personalize.reg. Make sure when you save it you do not save it as a text file. You can even copy this with the quotes to put in your save as box, and click save and you will be good to go. "Personalize.reg" Once you do that just double click the file, and follow the prompts. Now when you right click on your desktop you will get the Appearance Menu, and you can select Desktop background. All your stuff will be in there.

    Problem Fixed

    Perfect will try. Another issue I have with W-10 :
    Is this normal behavior 4 win 10? In File Explorer in full page
    scrolling down after 10 seconds will scroll up by itself to the very top.

    Edit: Help from MS Community


    hXXp://i2.answers.microsoft.com/static/images/mslogo.png?ver=5.7.0.102


    Windows 10 File Explorer - Scroll bar keeps jumping to top of folder files.


    Well I figured out what was causing the problem.
    I don't know how I didn't think of this earlier.


    The problem was that I had a desktop background
    set to change every 10 seconds. I also had the
    option enabled Automatically Pick an Accent Color
    from my Background. This changed accent color every 10 seconds,
    in turn refreshing my window.
