How to change 'My Normal Display Settings' defalts of Presentation Manager

Symptom

The screen modes management software bundled with Lenovo (present IBM) laptos does not allow you to change any settings to the default mode (My normal). As a result, an old background image may re-appear when even you rotate the presentation modes.

Fix

EDITING REGISTRY CAN CAUSE SERIOUS TROUBLE TO YOUR COMPUTER! ALWAYS BACK UP REGISTRY OR CREATE A RESTORATION POINT BEFORE DOING ANY CHANGES!

Hack registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lenovo\NPdirect\Data\Common\Presentation Schemes\My Normal Display Settings
Usign regedit.exeallows you to change whatever default settings you like. I choose to point the defaul background image setting to a link (shortcut) file.
