You need to start with the image size set to the same size that you want your wallpaper, so in Paint you create a new file then click on the 'resize' button and put in the dimensions (resolution) of your desktop in pixels - you may need to take the tick out of the 'keep aspect ratio' box. Create your masterpiece then save as a jpg file.

If it is fuzzy, then there are not enough pixels. You have to start with a higher resolution image.
