Indeed, if it's an image on your hd you wanna use as your background then this is the way to go. If it's an image you've seen on the net then right click it and click 'set as desktop background' or something similar.

in the start menu, open up the 'control panel'. in the control panel open 'display', again i believe it is the second tab.
by the way, are you changing it from your mac? if not, the dell laptop should have two buttons under the touch pad.

Start menu > Settings > Control Panel > Display (I think) > Desktop tab, from there is pretty straight forward.
