Just select any little image as the wallpaper, and set it to mosaic

If you are meaning the real old pattern, here's my reply.
So, in Windows 2000, there's still the pattern.

But, in Windows XP, there's no pattern at all.

:idea: (Just Thinking) Maybe Microsoft says this while Development of Windows XP: Hey, pattern is too classic. And we are dealing with themes.

You can do it by editing the registry. This still works even on Windows 10 1809, FWIW. Here's a screenshot of Critters - albeit on a 4K display it looks like little microscopic dots.

(Windows 10 will have a DWORD entry for the Pattern entry in your user profile. Delete it, then recreate it as a String using one of the values listed on that link - or your own, if you prefer! Then set your desktop to a solid colour, just as in the old days.)
