Yeah - I found it. Unfortunately, the selected wallpaper was already the appropriate resolution (if the file name can be believed) and the circle is still "squashed!" But perfectly round in the splash screen, which appears to be the identical image.
I tried the various settings (Scaled, Centered, Maintain Proportions, etc.) but none seemed to do anything. Do I need to log off and back on?
Please guys, don't put a whole lot of effort into this. I'll putter around and eventually figure it out, I'm sure.
