Where on earth can I find a basic "set as wallpaper" extension???

Option 1: Use The IE Tab Chrome Extension:

The IE Tab extension uses Internet Explorer to display web pages in a Chrome tab. This extension is mainly aimed at sites which can only be displayed properly using IE – with this extension you can now see those sites without leaving Chrome.

The other advantage of using this extension? It enables the Internet Explorer right-click menu inside Google Chrome. So, if you are viewing an image that you would like to set as a wallpaper open the website in IE Tab, and voilà you can right click to set the image as a wallpaper inside Google Chrome.

Just click on the IE tab button in the extensions

Just click on the IE tab button in the extensions menu and the current tab would be opened in the IE tab.

It also allows you to define a list of sites that you would like to always open in IE. So if you visit a wallpaper site regularly to change wallpapers, just add that site to the list in IE Tab extension options.
