    Should there be an option to select from pre selected background pics (like in WP8.1) - my 620 on W10 TP doesn't have this option, only to select pictures taken by my phone.

    I expect there will be eventually, but for now the answer is to connect the phone to your computer. You can browse to Camera Roll, make sure the handset is unlocked and operational, then drop the graphics in there.

    There's an annoying issue at the moment that the real 'desktop' is larger than your screen resolution, so your graphic will be stretched to fit and it is likely to appear a little larger than you expect. Perhaps they're bringing back the parallax snap later, and that's why it's using the extra gutter.

    You can save picture in your collection photo and you can use them & from OneDrive. Tap in background on browse and then on the 3 Dot's and choose location
