.jpg file will not display on screen when trying to set as background.Why?

Question

.jpg file will not display on screen when trying to set as background. Brought up "Display Properties", found the .jpg with "Browse" button, the .jpg shows up in the small screen on the "Background" tab, will not show on the regular screen after clicking "Apply" and "OK". Tried with two different .jpg files, the Windows default wallpaper choices will not display either.

JPEG files do not support transparent backgrounds or animation, but do support a type of interlacing that makes the photograph appear to fade in slowly on the page This type of file is called progressive JPEG
