Default Display background disappears when icons populate desktop

Hi all -

There has to be an easy fix for this, but I just can't seem to figure it out.

My laptop has a background image for its desktop. Recently, I needed to use it with a projector to present a powerpoint. The projector changed the settings for my Display (increasing the resolution) so my icons are now scattered all over the place.

While I changed the resolution back to where I had it before, and icons were easily rearrangeable, the background image goes away. I appears, however, on start up and on shut down, before the icons populate the desktop, or right before it shuts down and the icons disappear.

Anyone know how to get the background to appear there all the time like it should?
