I apologize if this topic is already up somewhere but I just joined and i didn't see it. This really isn't a pressing matter but does anyone else remember that you could right click on any image file, say a picture of a penguin or w/e, and one of the options towards the bottom was "set as desktop background" or something along those line. I used to do this all the time right from the desktop. so unless im crazy, does anyone know why all of the sudden that option isn't there? for any images. i know i hadn't run software update until right after i notice this, trying to see if it was something that would be fixed by an update, but the only update was a java script. did apple remove this feature? just fyi, im running on a release date 13" Aluminum MacBook (not the 13" pro), with the latest version of snow leopard. like i said, this isn't a big deal, i can still change my wallpaper but this was an easy option i used to use all the time and now its gone!

Should be called Set Desktop Picture - its still there on my Macbook

Are you using some odd image types that the desktop doesn't support, if not I would run a combo update to refresh the system

Mac OS X v10.6.4 Update (Combo)

Thanks for the help. That update did the trick. Not sure why it went away in the first place but it's back now. Thanks again.

Right click -> Set Desktop Picture has stopped appearing. I tried re-starting my system and also installed the update combo, but still it isn't coming up. :-(

Mine is a 10.6.6 OS version.
