This is frustrating. I am messing around learning HTML and CSS and can not get the background image to work. I have made a folder on my desktop called "test". created an index.html and style.css and put those in the folder accompanied by a background image from google. its is 1920x1200. These are all in the same test folder.
I have tried adding .jpg at the end but still no luck.
Here is my HTML and CSS code, both created with notepad++.
Please help!
What am i doing wrong?

<!DOCTYPE html>
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
